I've put together everything you need to make your own custom skirt (plus a belt or scarf!) and tucked it all into a cute little kit. And when you order one from my site, I'm including a little set of sushi magnets as a thank-you gift, or another surprise!

No experience is necessary to assemble one of these adorable skirts with matching sashes. In one afternoon even a sewing novice can apply this reusable pattern to construct her evening’s wardrobe, then make one in a different fabric for each of her sure-to-be-envious friends.

The kit contains:

  • A ball-point sewing needle
  • Fabric
  • Elastic and an elastic guide
  • Four pages of instructions to make your own custom pattern-or use a skirt that fits you well-to make your skirt, from start to finish
  • A full page of helpful sewing tips
  • Pattern paper

Available in six super cute fabrics! The patterned fabrics are all limited editions, so if you like one, be sure to order soon, before they’re replaced with fresh new designs. And if you choose a solid color (denim, black, or red), you get that color of fabric to make your skirt, plus a surprise contrast patterned fabric for your scarf-very cute!

Note: I recommend using a sewing machine to make your skirt, though you can sew it by hand.

You can make a skirt for any size waist/hip up to 50 inches. Please e-mail me if you’re interested in a larger size.
