I made this plaid skirt yesterday. I was really wanting a plaid skirt (see this post) and wanted to challenge myself to make this without a pattern and in an hour. I failed. It took me 2 hours. I'm not sure when I will learn that no sewing project will take me less than an hour. The easier I think a project is the longer it takes. I added pockets to this skirt, which is what took longer because I added them too high and couldn't get the elastic through the waistband.
But really, this is an easy skirt that anyone can make!
I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and want to make more skirts using this same idea of an elastic waist with pockets.
