Guest Tutorial: Chevron Skirt by Nicole of Little Bits of Crunch and Fluff
I’ve had a few sad comments from my friends Down Under who tell me it’s not summer at all where they live! Today’s guest blogger is Nicole from Little Bits of Crunch and Fluff, and she has come from the Land of Oz to show you how to make a chevron skirt, just in time for The Winter of No Pants 😉 Here’s Nicole:
Hi SONP-ers! I’m Nicole from Little Bits of Crunch and Fluff – crunch b/c I’m a little hippy (granola) and fluff b/c I love fluffy bums (cloth diapers).
When we moved around the world (nearly a year ago!), I was unable to bring my sewing machine. My darling husband must have been tired of hearing me whine about not being able to sew, b/c I got not ONE, but TWO sewing machines for Christmas. Since it was summer here, I went searching for skirt patterns (my own personal “down with the pants” plan). I stumbled upon Marigold’s blog and SONP10. Who’d have thought I’d be contributing to SONP11.
For this challenge, I was trying to think of something new – something not already covered in Marigold’s extensive skirt review from last year. That’s when I thought about chevrons. I’m seeing them all over blogland. Then my brain started going…”you can’t put chevrons on a skirt. a skirt is curvy. it would just look all wonky.” Time to prove my brain wrong…
