A couple days ago I was shopping at Fabric.com and ordered these two sweater knits for fall cardigans/jackets:

Boucle Sweater Knit Novelty Stripe Black  

I also ordered a yard of this pink diagonal stripe to make another drapey sleeveless top.  I love sleeveless tops as I can wear them all summer, then layer them under cardigans or jackets for the cooler weather.

Stretch Jersey ITY Knit Tonal Stripe Rose

While I was poking around I came across several ruffle fabrics like the ones below, but had no idea what to do with them, so passed them by.

Stretch Ruffle Knit Turquoise   Rainbow Ruffle Knit Orange/Pink

The day after I placed my order I came across a tutorial to make this absolutely adorable skirt. 

Is that not the cutest thing?  I am SO placing another fabric.com order.  A yard of the black ruffle knit and a yard of the cerulean, at least.

You can find the complete tutorial here.  It involves a little measuring, two seams and sewing on one waistband.  Super duper easy.

Happy creating!

    1. It’s still feeling like summer here most days, but sadly, fall will come on soon.

      I haven’t even received my first fabric order yet, never mind placed a second. I was actually thinking of checking my local Joann’s first, I’d love to get a ruffle fabric in that denimy stuff she used in the tutorial. They don’t have that at fabric.com.

      So, what are you sewing these days?
