Sew Out Stash: Ikat Hogwarts Style

DIY Ikat knit skirt and Harry Potter shirt
Oh my guys I had high hopes for Sew Our Stash this month but besides the crazy work that the Happy Harry Potter series takes (all worth it though) we got hit with a huge bug and I’ve been holding Teddy through the night poor sick boy. So sadly those amazing hand stamped Harry Potter dresses that I had planned are still sitting as a pile of fabric on my cutting table.

But I have made myself a few things this month. Just in case you forgot. We had the Square Maxi Skirt for Riley Blake. Pretend that I made myself and awesome Harry Potter top to go with it (I’m thinking with Polkadot Chair’s amazing Quidditch Mom design).

And I made that Hogwarts Text Book Skirt which I ADORE. It’s so cute in person guys! I’ll get a nice modeled shot of that for you soon. I promise.

But our theme this month was polka dots and here is my unusual take on polka dots. Let’s just say trying to combine Potter and Polka dots and all the other stuff going on was a little tough. But I’m in love with this skirt and I know it will get lots and lots of wear!

I made it using my Simple Simon and Co’s SPEEEDY knit skirt tutorial. It teaches you how to take the measurements off your own body and make a pattern. It’s my favorite!

I do have another polka dot project I was reeeeeaaaaallly wanting to make so I will just have to share it next month. But until then here is my new skirt and new top. I shared the tutorial on how to make this but the baby version last year and I’ll be adding the adult ones to my shop later this week (the baby ones can already be purchased here).

This sounds so fun. Monthly sewing themes for women.

Okay here’s to a better next month of Sew Our Stash. The theme next month is knock off!  And before you go Bev shared a bunch of awesome Maxi Skirt Tutorials so go check them out!
