Skirting the Issue

Have you heard of Skirting the Issue??  It’s an amazing initiative from over at Simple Simon and Co – – basically they spend the entire month sewing, along with readers, to make skirts to donate for girls in foster care (who will receive them just in time for back to school).   Perfect, right?!  I know you’ll want to participate!  You can find the details here: Skirting the Issue

So since you’ll be sewing skirt, you’ll need some tutorials – – I LOVE sewing skirts – they come together quickly, and you can have so much fun with them.  I gathered up a few of the posts of tutorials I’ve done for skirts, all here in one easy place for you.  Then you can browse and click through to find what you need.
