The One Seam Rectangle Skirt by Rhonda Buss

For the past year I have enjoyed reading Rhonda Buss’ blog, Rhonda's Creative Life.  She is one sweet lady for sharing her talents with us every week. Her hobbies range from sewing to knitting; cooking to piloting a plane (Amazing!!!).  If you have not had a chance to check her out, please do.  And did I mention she even gives out cooking recipes on Sundays?  Hello!!  Anyway, every Friday she gives you Fabulous Free Pattern Friday.  For the longest time I’ve wanted to try one of her patterns and the list is getting longer with every Friday that passes.  

There was no time like the present, so I decided to start with her One Seam Rectangle Skirt.

                                                       This picture is courtesy of her blog.

Rhonda’s patterns are very simple to put together and she explains and gives directions in a way that it's easy to follow and you can’t go wrong.  

I enjoyed making this skirt up and when I tell you, I think it only took an hour tops from cut to finish.  Did I mention I made this whole outfit with 1 5/8 yards of fabric which I purchased from Fabric Warehouse I think a year or year and a half ago.  It's a sweater knit. 

I have paired the skirt here with McCall 4517 (OOP).  

 I definitely see a few more of these skirts in my future, especially during the summer months as it can be worn as a coverup and/or with a tank to keep cool.  

If you've been thinking about trying one of her patterns, please do.  You will not be disappointed.  I wasn't.  I know for a fact I am going to try a few of her other patterns in the near future.

I love it... it looks like a dress but you can mix and match because they are really separates!

Myra said...

Very nice! I love the way the skirt and too together gives the illusion of a dress!
