Skirts made using patterns by Serendipity Studios

I ordered Fashion Formula Skirts Mini Books from Serendipity Studio and went on a sewing bender. Kay Whitt has a lot of great ideas in her books, especially for sewers who come from a quilting background. They do not contain pattern pieces. All cutting is made with measurements calculated, based on your hip size.

Since I'm addicted to prints, this was a great stash buster. (Who am I kidding? I bought MORE fabric to make these. Sssshhhh.)

The red blouse is another McCall's M6653 Misses' Top using embroidered cotton from 
The skirt with godets is made with prints by Anna Maria Horner, Innocent Crush "Slowdance Vintage" and "Mixed Signals Summer" quilting cotton.

These prints are by Valori Wells, Wrenly "Ingrid Gypsy" and "Boho Stripe Cerulean".

This pleated one is made using Anna Maria Horner's Loulouthi "Summer Totem Grapefruit" and "Framed Shadow".

This godet skirt uses linen / cotton blend fabric by Valori Wells, called Jenaveve, "Floral Birds Merlot" and "Leaves Merlot".

This pouf skirt is made using cotton voile by Valori Wells from her Cocoon collection: "Metamorphosis Bittersweet" and "Liv Sapphire".

This faux wrap skirt is made using Amy Butler's Soul Blossoms - "Sari Blooms in Moss". It was cut on the crossgrain to take advantage of the border print. This can be made very quickly.

Who cares if I look like a walking sofa?
