Finished Object - Pink elastic-waist skirt

This is my second garment in my Colette Patterns Spring Palette Challenge.

I'm quite pleased with it; it was so easy to sew and took no time at all. I definitely recommend this project for beginners. Unfortunately I can't wear it yet because it's just too chilly for me to wear skirts right now, but as it's part of my spring wardrobe, I'll just have to be patient.

You can see the inspiration board that I put together here.


  1. Nice job, you will enjoy this garment when spring comes! like the pink!

  2. Wow, Katherine, I absolutely love this skirt. That shade of pink is the perfect color for spring! The mix of the elastic waist and drapey fabric is also very RTW - I've seen skirts like this before in boutiques, but having your own one-of-a-kind version is so much better.

  3. Hi Katherine!
