Christmas Red Crepe!!!

 Hey Guys !! This will be a super quick post today ! 
I wanted to show you my gathered skirt that I made in a day !


Yes a DAY I tell you!! ! 
Funny thing is I originally had no plans to make anything this weekend ... well at least not for me ! Today we had our Christmas program at the school that I work , so I spent most of the weekend making costumes for the  (pics can be found on my Instagram account) program . It was not until I stumbled across this gorgeous Crepe at Joann's that I decided to make me a quick skirt for the program ( one perk of being able to sew your own clothes!..  ) 



This skirt was sooo simple to make ... 

1. I  cut 2 panels the width of the fabric  (front and back)

 2. I then marked the length that I wanted down and cut

3. I cut my 2 waist band pieces  4 inches wide   (waist measurement +1.25 inches), from fabric and ONE piece from interfacing. 

4. I Interfaced on one piece of the waistband and then sewed them right sides together on ONE LONG end.

5. Next I turned the waistband right side out and pressed , leaving the bottom and ends unfinished .

**THIS PART IS  OPTIONAL**
6. I used a pocket pattern piece from another pattern to create my pockets I cut 4 pieces from fabric.. 
7. I started my pockets at the top of my panel and sewed them to panel right sides together on a 3/8 inch seam then pressed them to   the inside ( do this on both the front and back pieces ) 


**SKIP TO HERE IF NOT ADDING POCKETS ! **
8. I took my two panels after adding the pocket and sewed them together ( leaving space for the hand to go into the pocket ) on ONE SIDE . ( the other side I Installed a zipper before closing it up )
** Be sure to stitch around your pockets to close them up**

9. I gathered all my pieces until they fit around my waist band and sewed them together.

 10. Finished the hem and WALA!!



I would say say in total it took me maybe 4 hours to finish her !
She was super easy and had a very dramatic look !








I love how this skirt turned out and WILL be making more !!



Until Next Time XOXOXO!!!
