Here is the tutorial that I used to make my cardboard skirt pattern. This is a very detailed and easy to understand tutorial, and I highly recommend it to anyone. I have not followed the tutorial for making the skirt yet, but when I do I will post it!

So I decided I needed a basic skirt pattern that was simple enough to alter and play with. I realized that making a new pattern every time I wanted to make a skirt was just silly. I made this out of cardboard so that it can withstand repeated use, and repeated cat attacks! There is a tutorial on how to make this online, which I promise to link to later, when I am on my computer where it is bookmarked. Its fairly simple and such a great thing to have. All you need is you hip, and waist measurments and the measurment of the length between them. Stay tuned for the tutorial!

I am a Renegade Seamstress. What that means to me, is that I love to sew, but I don't like to follow directions! I rarely use a store bought pattern, and when I do, I usually alter it. Most of the clothes I make come from something else. Old jeans, T-shirts, skirts, even sheets! Anything fabric can become raw material for me. I don't like to spend tons of money on clothes that I know I could make myself, and make better. I hate getting rid of old clothes that don't fit. And I love knowing that nobody else has something like mine!
