Mod Mini Skirt Project: Criss Cross Fabric

Another mod mini skirt! What a shocker! Ha ha...

I'm trying to put these suckers up real fast, so I can get caught up. This one is made of vintage polyester with a criss cross design. Purchased from "IntheOldSchoolhouse" on Etsy. Etsy is the source for most of my vintage fabric needs.

And Sarah Coventry was the maker of most of my jewelry.

And some notes on this skirt project that I haven't mentioned yet:

1.) Tailoring: I do have to bring in the side seams a tad. I bring them in about a 1.25 inches at each side and about 1 inch at the waist.

2.) Hemming: I make each skirt a couple inches shorter than the pattern. As you all know, pattern sizing tends to be tall so that if you're short or average height, it's necessary to hem to get the right length.

That's about it!

Happy sewing,


  1. Astrid, what are those two little pattern pieces? facings for the waistband?

  2. Another super cute creation. Gotta love it when you find the perfect pattern. You can sure whip up these skirts quickly.
