Knit Skirt Tutorial

A few months ago I was asked to participate in an event called, “The Great Knit Fabric Experiment” put on my Stitch Simple and sponsored by Harmony Art.

My part? Make a tutorial using knits that would help a beginning/novice sewer over come their fear of knits.

I thought it sounded like great fun and having a few knit projects under my sewing belt, I wanted to help encourage others to give it a try too.

I was inspired to create a knit skirt based on one I own (and  love) and one I wish I owned (but now can make myself) from Garnet Hill which had the addition of ruffles {swoon}.

** Do not go to Garnet Hill. I repeat, do not go there … if you do, you’ll likely find these shoes. And you will really, really, really like them. And want them. Especially since they would look really cute with this skirt. So just don’t do it, okay? Mkay. **

To read the full post and tutorial … you can visit the Google document here.

Oh and I’ll be back later with a photo of me wearing my new skirt …

Happy Creating!!


  1. So cute! I need to make some for this summer for sure! Which means I’m going to need to come over and use your serger. I’ll bring the Wonder Cutter and we can do a trade. :)

    Super cute skirt! LOVE those shoes, too! I have been avoiding looking at them so as not to tempt myself, but I finally gave in. Darn you, Born, for making such cute/comfy shoes and darn you, Garnet Hill for making me want said cute shoes amongst (many) other things!

  3. that is fabulous!!! i need that skirt. it’s soooooo cute!

  4. I wonder how this would be out of our organic white jersey… maybe hand-dyed first? :)

    I love this skirt. Thanks for participating in the Experiment!!

  5. Great skirt!

  6. I LOVE it!! Is it for me? I might need a few more ruffles…. :)


  7. The skirt is cute. Saw you over at One Pretty Thing.

  8. Great tutorial! Of course, I don’t need to add one more project to my “to make” list, but now that I see this, i will have to anyway!

  9. Ooh I love it! I love that the last layer is your original skirt. Great idea. I made a knit ruffly skirt but mine was more straight shaped. I think I need an a line one too. . . .

  10. What a lovely tutorial! I’m going to have to make one of these for myself. (in black, of course)

  11. So cute!
