Sew It Yourself: Mustache Skirt


Are you beginning to see a trend with me and the Alexander Henry fabrics? I may or may not be a little obsessed… but needless to say, I can spot them when I see them! This skirt by Folter Clothing was no exception. That’s unmistakably Alexander Henry’s “Where’s My ‘Stache?” print in the Taupe colorway.

This skirt retails online for nearly $60 dollars, but you could easily make it for half that cost. That’s the reason we sew, is it not?

Pair this particular print (found at Fabricworm) with New Look pattern 6872Β and Sew It Yourself!

I’m reaaaallllllly going to have to make this one up for myself! I love it!! Plus, it would be a really easy instant gratification kind of project. Double love!

    I’ve used this pattern a few times. Very easy to sew up!

  • I’ve made this skirt pattern too. It’s one of the first things I posted on my blog. But now I feel like I was a chump because I’ve realised how ridiculously easy these are to draft, lol! Still, a pattern gives a beginner comfort. πŸ™‚ Neat fabric!

    You wouldn’t even need a pattern. It’s just a dirndl skirt and waistband – gertie has a free tute for a full gathered skirt which you could follow. It’s pretty full so you could use less fabric for this one but still pretty easy!

    I’ve made this skirt pattern. It’s super easy and quick!
    It has a side zipper which I changed to a back zipper with an overlap for buttons.

    What a smile-inducingly fun, awesome skirt! I recently bought a cute little plastic (black) mustache brooch from eBay for a total song. It’s my first item of mustache garb so far. The seller might have others, if you’re interested, let me know and I’ll give you the link.

    Have a fabulous weekend, dear lady!
