My DDIL found this skirt on Pinterest and asked me to make it for her. It has a smooth front with an elastic waist back. I don't know if this gal is a PR member, but she promises to post pattern instructions on her blog soon. I think the skirt could be adapted from a simple skirt pattern, although I would eliminate the elastic back waist. Has anyone else seen this?

Rhoda, I think that if you eliminate the elastic in the back, what's left is the classic gathered skirt that many of us had to make in school as our first sewing project. A waistband and a gathered rectangle cut long enough to permit the addition of a couple of pleats near the hemline: you can probably do this blindfolded.

our first sewing project

Your comment brings back fond memories. That was my first project too, if memory serves me well. I wish I could see mine now. I loved sewing waaaaaay back then too.

You're right Karla, I was thinking the same thing - how hard can it be? I don't remember what my first sewing project was in school I have to stop by Joann's or Hancock's today, so I'll pick up some muslin and give it a shot. Since I'll be eliminating the elastic, I'll just add a zipper. DDIL wasn't crazy about the look of the elastic in the back and neither was I - it just looked too bulky.
