Gathered skirts are my all time favourite thing to sew - they are so easy(sew easy? hah!) to make and they give some shape to my barrel of a body! Third best thing - you can make them in all different lengths and fabrics. There are very few people who don’t look good in these skirts - and they’re really easy to wear. This is a great beginner sewing project. OK, enough talking about gathered skirts, get to it and make one already!
