Butterick 5466 – Fringe Skirt

img_3244

This skirt is one of those simple sewing projects that is so satisfying.  It hung on a hanger for over a week waiting for the rain to stop so we could take pictures. It made me happy every time I looked at it. The fabric had been in my stash for a few years. I had the lining and the invisible zipper as well. I was all set to go.

I wanted to make a pencil skirt with a fringe. I used my go-to pencil skirt pattern: Butterick 5466. I like this pattern because it offers various waist options.

I changed the zipper to be on the side so I wouldn’t have a seam in the center back. Once the fabric was cut I began to pull horizontal threads at the bottom of the skirt until I had the length of fringe I wanted. I used my coverstitch machine to sew a seam above the fringe in order to secure the fabric. Next I proceeded to sew the skirt as I normally would. The nice part about making a skirt with a fringe is that you don’t have to hem it 🙂
