I made my friend Danielle this plaid skirt a few weeks ago. It's one of the easiest skirts I have ever made. I used this tutorial I found online. A few weeks ago I saw an Etsy shop that sells this type of skirt for $50-$60 and thought how easily I could make it. I became obsessed with the idea and bought several different plaid and holiday fabrics. So far I have made only 2. One for me and one for Danielle. ha! But, I think I would like to make myself a solid red and black one for the winter and think I would get a lot of work wear out of them. If you are a beginner sewer, this is an excellent project to begin with. If you want to make it easier, omit the pockets.
