Debate on: Skirts (have you ever made one, would you wear
one?

Hi! Browsing through the winter clothes at my local Filene's basement (and these are discount prices) I just cannot be laying out $80 for a good skirt and don't wan't a cheaply made $29 skirt well, maybe one...) so it occurred to me

with all the yarn in my yarn stash, why not MAKE A SKIRT OR TWO? I'm wondering if anybody here has? It's a challenge coz if you aren't like, a size 6, it's gonna make you look BIG.

I like these two patterns so far but one is in cotton.

The trick is to not have it too tight esp around the hips but more drapey. Anyone seen any other interesting skirt patterns?

The first one is a pattern, the second is a picture, also from IK.

Oh wow Ingrid! I LOVE the second skirt! That's more like what I was thinking of but couldn't find, a bit swingy and not too tight. The first one would make me look like a sausage I think.

Shoot, I got one issue of Interweave free and didn't subscribe, now I want it. hmmmmmm

All I found is the picture. I tried to find out what issue it's in, but the picture was attached to a techniques page. I'll look through the IK's I have and see if it happens to be in any of them. You can have the pattern if it's in one of them.

Even when I had a body that could stop a truck (where did that come from? is it a malaprop?), I couldn't wear knits on my derriere. They hung funny and made me look lumpy. It was weird. Maybe it was just shades of my future showing up in the mirror... :rollseyes:

Ha, I know whatcha mean! Well, even though I lost weight I put some back on but I'm sick of wearing JEANS all the time so I figure I'll knit a loose type skirt and wear it with big sweaters and boots.
Nothing wrong with a luftig bottom anyhow! l

Thanks again Ingrid for looking through your magazines, I think it's in the new issue and will look when I get to the bookstore. I like that one better than the ones at Patterncentral.
