Can you believe we’ve come to the end of our Sewing Skirts with Anita Sew-Along Series? I don’t know about you, but I’m super thrilled to have four new skirts added to my wardrobe.
Our final skirt in the series is an A-Line skirt with NEW LOOK 6106. At first, I wasn’t sure about this one. I wondered if it might make me look a bit frumpy.
Therefore, I chose to sew the mini version, View A, without the ribbon at the waist. Aaaahhh!!! That’s right, I’m wearing a mini skirt and I love it.
Oh honey, back in the day, I used to wear them real short. Hahaha!!! Mini skirts! Mini dresses! I was ROCKING them all. You couldn’t tell me I wasn’t fine back then. Hahahaaaa!!! I remember seeing photos of my mother in her mini skirts and boots from the 60’s. And what are we seeing now? Cycles! The fashion trends always cycle back.
Styling this skirt was a lot of fun. I wanted to elevate it from just a boring A-Line skirt, so I played around a bit. Throwing on my thigh high boots and a faux leather jacket spiced it up a bit.
Next, I paired it with my sweater knit tank and a neck scarf with blue tights and matching shoes. This look gave me flight attendant vibes. Oh, and nothing screams classy like a beautiful strand of pearls.
Then I tried it with a striped turtleneck top. Of course, I had to throw on a hat, because I had a blue felt one to match.
Overall, I love the skirt at this length. If I were to sew it again, I would definitely add a lining. I’m actually planning to make another one in a thicker fabric.
Now that I’ve given you some inspiration photos for this easy to sew skirt, go check out the sew-along video. I’m also announcing the WINNER of the $50 Gift Certificate to Fabric.com in the video.
Thank you for following the series. I’m definitely planning to do another one for tops. I don’t know when, but keep watching because it’s coming.
Thanks for stopping by!
Remember: When you live in your DESIGN, it is from there that God SHINES!
