{REVIEW} Strip Quilt Skirt

Have you seen the latest pattern from Rabbit Rabbit Creations? The greatest stash buster ever!!

All you need to rock this skirt is 5 “strips” of fabric remnants. The tutorial is super easy to follow and great for a beginner pattern. The trickiest element was the elastic waistband and stitch in the ditch.

What you need to know:

  • EXCELLENT STASH BUSTER!!
  • There was a lot of excess fabric at the end. Easily adjust this by not cutting your strips the full width of the fabric.
  • The 1.5″ elastic was a little too big for the waistband fabric strip. This can be adjusted easily by using 1″ elastic instead.
  • Stretching the elastic across the length of the waistband fabric while sewing was challenging. My suggestion is to stretch and pin prior to stitching. That way you would only have to stretch while sewing smaller sections.
