Simplicity 1616 skirt

This summer is all about easy to sew, easy to wear clothes for me. I don’t want to fuss to have to wear something (or make something). So, the latest thing I’ve made is this skirt from Simplicity.

The pattern is for woven or stretch knit fabrics. I used a woven fabric. I made View D with some changes. I shortened the skirt by about 14″. I also eliminated the slit. It’s a full skirt, so a slit really wouldn’t be needed anyway.
In addition, I did “stitch-in-the-ditch” to secure the elastic. The pattern says that the elastic should “float” in the casing. I didn’t want that, so I did secure it. 

I used a cotton that I bought at Hobby Lobby to make this. So, more easy, breezy sewing for summer to come!
