Basic Skills Necessary:
I do so very much enjoy running. I unfortunately end up going through long periods of time where I get out of it completely. Running shorts and pants are the not the most forgiving when you've been away for awhile, so a perfect solution for that......is the running skirt! It hides everything that needs hiding, and makes you feel pleasantly feminine at the same time.
I've made this a drop-waist skirt, so there's no fullness where your top hangs over your pants. You want to be able to accent that stomach that keeps getting more toned with every run.
This skirt also make the perfect companion to a swimsuit, and it's great for yoga, pilates and zumba.
Sizing / Finished Measurements:
- -1-2 yards of spandex/bathing suit type fabric (You want something that will stretch in all directions, and doesn't fray on its cut edge. The yardage will depend on your size. Sizes s-m should be able to get away with a yard. the widths of this sort of fabric are generally very generous. If you're unsure, cut your pattern before you buy your fabric. Lay the pieces out, and measure the space they fit into.) -1/2"-1" wide, no-roll elastic that is the same size as your waistline (make sure the measuring tape is on your belly button) -measuring tape -matching thread -many pins! -strap turner/large safety pin -Large roll of paper, paper-cutting scissors, yard stick and writing utensil (Gift wrap is perfect. If you have a rotary cutter and mat, you won't have to worry about drawing anything) -(optional, but recommended) Cutting mat and rotary cutter -sewing machine with stretch stitch or zig zag, -(optional) serger
