Destiny -- becoming a better you

"The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be."  Ralph Waldo Emerson

What a great quote and what a great reminder that our destiny is whatever we choose.  

I couldn't decide on a color ... so the printable pdf file has SEVEN.

Running Skirt Sew Along Day 4

Running Skirt Sew Along Day 4

Pin the skirt to the leggings at the waist.  Be sure the skirt is the correct length.

Mark the skirt/leggings and waistband into quarters.

Pin the waistband to the skirt/leggings by matching up the pins.  Be sure the seam of the waistband is at the back of the skirt/leggings.

When attaching the waistband, slightly stretch the waistband to fit the skirt/leggings.  Congratulations!  You now have a running skirt.  I hope you enjoyed the sew along and I hope you will share your pictures with us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

Running Skirt Sew Along Day 3

Running Skirt Sew Along Day 3

Today we complete the leggings.  Sew the pants as instructed in the pattern but do not add the waistband.

I cut off about 1 1/2 inches off the top of the pants because I like a short waist on my pants. 

Check the length of the skirt to be sure it is the correct length on the leggings.  I placed my skirt so that it just covers the bum.  You can go ahead and pin the skirt on if you would like.

Running Skirt Sew Along Day 2

Running Skirt Sew Along Day 2

Today you will complete the skirt portion of the running skirt.

Sew side seams together.  I serged the side seams together.

Finish the hem.  I used my coverstitch machine to finish the hem but you could also leave it raw or use a twin needle.  If you don't feel confident about the length of the skirt, wait to finish the hem.  Once the pants are put together, you can be sure the skirt is the perfect length.

Cut the waistband.  Sew short sides of the waistband together to form a tube.  Set the waistband aside until we finish the leggings.

You should have a completed skirt minus the waistband.
