My Very First Sewing Project :: DIY Simple Skirt

Hey guys! I hope you are having a great week. TGIF!!!! Today,  I want to share with you my very first sewing project - the project that got me obsessed with sewing.

About a year ago, I found this really cool custom skirt course on the Corrine Leigh TV Channel. The course goes through the entire process creating a skirt, beginning with how to draft a simple skirt pattern. I found the instructions very easy to follow. Although  I had never sewn a day in my life, I was able to produce the pictured skirt simply by going through the series. Check out the videos.You'd be surprised how easy it is to make your own skirt. #GetInspired.
