Skirting the Issue: Skirt Tutorials from iCandy

Today we have some tutorials from our friends Jen and Autie over at iCandy.  We've loved them forever.  They are just plain cool and we take advantage of every opportunity we can find to hang out with them...even if it is only in cyber space.
These ladies work magic with knit and have loads of awesome knit skirt tutorials that are great for girls, teens, and women.

And there are plenty of others on their skirt and tutorials page so head on over to iCandy and check them out!

This week Skirting the Issue is focusing on making skirts to donate to various charities....I am donating mine to a fantastic local foster care closet.  There they said that they are usually in pretty good shape for the younger girls but for the tween and teen aged girls there is a real need.  So with back to school coming up those are the size skirts I am focusing on making.

Are you going to sew along with us?  (I hope so.)  And if you are where are you planning on donating your skirts to?  Foster care like me or another place that you know is in need?  Let us know, we'd love to hear all about it.

PS---If you need a good girl/teen sizing chart you can use this one here that we put together last year.
Skirt Sizing Charts & Measurements
***Please note that the sizes are all actual measurements.
 (So that means if you are making a girls skirt with an elastic waistband and the chart says an average size 4 is a 21 inch waist then that would be her actual waist measurement and you would need to cut the elastic at 20 inches...or accordingly depending on the style skirt you are making.)
