If I can do this, anyone can! LOL See the "easy to sew" skirt in a search at the site called "mormonchic.com." I am not kidding when I say it is both cute, and takes only about 20-30 min. Cotton works wonderful, too, and I recycled a soft long shoestring from my son's wrestling shoes for the draw string. Does NOT look "sacky" like I thought, and is really cute and versatile in many fabrics.
Here is main idea: use enough fabric to wrap around you with about an inch/two left over. Sew up one side. Turn over on top for "drawstring"...sew hem on bottom. Add pockets, brick brack, embroidery cute patches, etc. Tah Dah! Cute skirt!
Take good care,
