This is me. I'm not smiling because my brother, the giggly one, only took two pictures of me and they both happened to be of me, not smiling. Anyway, I managed to make this knit skirt over the weekend. It's a dark grey rayon blend fabric with pinstripes. I ordered it from Fabric.com. I like it that fabrics-store.com posts the actual weight of each fabric; fabric.com only posts general terms: "lightweight," "medium" or "heavy." This knit was a "heavy." Is this knit had been anything less than "heavy" it wouldn't have worked well for a skirt.
I had too much fun with the stripes. Besides the triangle top and pocket I added three crazy-quiltish patches at the hem. Knit certainly doesn't have that tailored look, but it's super comfortable and practical for everyday wear, and easy to sew. For the waistband I sewed a sturdy band of elastic to the knit with a zig-zag stitch, and then folded it under. I also used a zig-zag stitch to finish the hem.
I did order this knit from fabric.com (I was already ordering something else, anyway) and was satisfied overall; however, for knits specifically I'd like to try Girl Charlee someday. Like, someday very soon. This week, maybe. Eeek!
