Sewing is therapy for me. I hoard fabric, patterns, notions, and spend more time shopping for fabric than I care to admit...

Jungle January continues!

So imagine this: your TNT skirt pattern in a jungle print?  I think I hear winds blowing and purring contentedly!  Meow!  I love this pattern and I love my python print...what else to say?  Wow!

So, if you've never sewn Sewaholic patterns before, what the heck are you waiting for?  They are just simply awesome!  They go together easily, are super cute, well drafted, stylish, and look great on a variety of people!  Any questions?

I used this print from Hancock that sewed up great and it has a bit of a stretch for extra comfort.  I made this pretty much straight from the package directions except for the lapped, rather than invisible, zipper.  Why?  I didn't have an appropriate invisible zipper so I improvised.
I made view A, which is the same one I made before.  I love the ability to wear a belt with this skirt so I do!
This was an incredible bargain--my fabric was 75% off and cost me less than $4 a yard!  All in, this skirt was less than $10 (fabric and zipper).

This skirt only takes about 2 yards so it is economical as well as stylish and an instant gratification project.  The pockets are really ingenious and are created with one piece of fabric that includes the pocket facing and back--all in one!

I made a 12 and it fits perfect in the waist but may need tweaked in the hips just a bit, as in I may take it in a tad...not quite sure as I like it just like this!

Make this if you want a quick project that you'll love wearing!

Back off ladies, the handsome young man photo bombing this is taken...he's my son and newly engaged!

Your welcome!
