From the elastic waist to the flounce of the bottom tier, this skirt is a quick and easy project that can be made for children (sizes 4-16) and adults (sizes 2-28). Whether you mix and match three different fabrics, like the sample, or decide to use only one, you'll follow a chart to choose the size and length of each tier and finish the skirt by learning how simple gathering and making an elastic casing can be. Make the matching "Knot an Ordinary Purse" (August's project) to have a cute outfit that you'll make again and again in different fabric combinations. 

FUN & DONE - Knot an Ordinary Purse -
August 24 @ 1:30 pm  Easy piecing is sure to make this fashionable sling purse an oft-repeated project. Cut to hold a generous amount of books or your walking-about necessities, this bag is lined with contrast fabric and its long handles can be adjusted slightly in length by where you choose to tie the knot.  Make it in fabrics that match the Triple Tiered Skirt (July's project) and you'll have a stylin' outfit for the start of school.  Class fee is $15.
