Swich-A-Roo Skirt

We made this years ago and now I see the true fabulous-ness of it – how many days can I wear this in a row!  (with a toddler in the house this is a very good thing).  It is a skirt with a lot of fun in the front – great place to play with color or texture – and it switches color from the outside to the inside with a simple re-tie.  really comfy and very fun to wear.  sewing level: beginner and up.

class cost $40

materials needed:  I yard of each color fabric and thread to match.

About the author



  • When you say “woven” fabric, do you mean something heavier than a calico/quilt fabric?
    In my head, all fabric is woven. Where is a good place to buy clothes fabric instead of craft fabric?

    • Hello Christy,
      Thanks for your questions. For this class a mid-to-heavy weight fabric will work best as it will take a little more wear. When I say woven fabric I am saying no knits -stretchy fabric. I am referring to the method in which it was made. As for your big question – where to go to get garment fabric instead of craft fabric. wow.
      I have a few suggestions: A few of the quilt stores in Olympia and Tumwater have fabulous mid-weight cotton, I love Ruby Street Quilts in Tumwater, the folks there are wonderful and walking in there is like walking into a garden of color and print. Canvas works, in down town Olympia, carries wonderful fabrics, some really beautiful mid-weight and even some lovely wool. And Joann’s has started to carry more garment fabric then in years past, but I always suggest folks go in there prepared: have a few hours to spend looking and standing in line, be well rested and coffeed up and with your a pockets full of coupons. If you are traveling outside our fair town, Portland is rich with choices – starting with Fabric Depot and Mill Ends and Seattle has several great garment options as well. You could also go the way I do and shop at the local Thrift shops and yard sales for your fabric. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask away.
      Have a fabulous day.

  • I am planning on taking the May 11 class with my mother. What will we need to bring? I am also a size 26 will I need a special pattern?

  • I just signed up for the a-line class and I’m very excited. Never having taken a class with you you guys before, could you please give me the full rundown of what I need to bring, including equipment, how much fabric, which notions? Thanks a million.

  • Is this the skirt that is being made in March, the description on the calendar is different. I thought this one was made last month. I am interested in taking the class this month, but I want to make sure I have the right materials.

    • Janea,
      You are right – I got carried away with my naming this month (opps 🙂 ) thanks for letting me see how confusing this is. I carried the same skirt over into the first week of March. The photo is of the Feb. skirt. – – I will have a photo of the Fabulous Wonderland skirt up very soon. The Fabulous Wonderland Skirt: Fabulous and flirty this a must for any gal who tends to run a little late and has a bit of Alice in or the Queen of Hearts in her! A tiered skirt with lots of ruffles and fabulous fullness, for which you need will need 3 yards of light weight fabric, a 7′ zipper and thread to match, is
      This class is offered: Tuesday March 13 and Saturday March 24
