One Hour Skort?

Every now and then I get a little bee in my bonnet, and think I should sew some clothing.  I'm not the best at garment sewing, but I try anyway.  I thought this "1 Hour Shorts" pattern couldn't be too tough.  It'll probably be more like a One Week Shorts pattern for me - ha!ha!

I chose View A, which is actually a "skort".  I think that's what you call it; shorts that look like a skirt?  It's a 1990's pattern.  They were popular back then.  I went through my stash and picked out this wild looking paisley print for the fabric.  It looks like fun to me.  It might make a good Stack 'N Whack fabric, too.

That 5/8" seam allowance for sewing clothing always looks HUGE to me after so many 1/4" seam allowance quilts.

And....I made it all the way to the waistband today.  I might be able to finish these up in the next sewing session - not too shabby!

If you're inspired to sew a bit of clothing for your own wardrobe, or for someone you love, check out the Dress Pattern Section in the Curlicue Creations shop.  With 64 patterns currently in the shop, you're sure to find something you love.

  1. You have motivated me to find a pattern for skorts and make several for me for the hot summer coming.

  2. I wore skorts in the seventies. Second hand, of course, so they probably came out in the late sixties.
