Lobster Knit Skirts | Knit Love Tour

This winter season has me dreaming of summer and I’m crazy mad about these lobster prints from Riley Blake. So, when the team asked if I would create something fun with the fabric and be part of the Knit Love tour, I was all in!

Something about this print screams summertime to me. It reminds me of walks on the beach with the kids, looking for shells, campfire nights and S’mores. (okay, cocktails… but the kids have S’mores, I promise!)

Lobster Knit Skirts by The Sewing Loft

One of my favorite things to wear in the summer is knit skirts. The ease of just slipping one on with your favorite tee or tank says easy dressing in my book.


To complete my outfit, I picked up a few extras but the fedora is my personal favorite! It comes with a white and navy printed band that just would not do for me. So, I switched it out.

Want to customize your own? Here’s how:

  1. Determine the finished height of your fabric band; add 1″ for seam allowance. Measure around the base of your hat. Add 1″ for overlapping seam allowance. Cut pattern piece to size determined above.change the band on your fedora with this easy how to. The Sewing Loft
  2. You can serge each long side to clean finish if you like but I just folded and press the seam allowance to wrong side of fabric. Over lap the ends and stitch in place to create a loop. change the band on your fedora with this easy how to. The Sewing Loft
  3. Slide over hat and stitch or hot glue in place. Create another small band and wrap around the band to cover the stitch line. Glue or stitch in place.change the band on your fedora with this easy how to. The Sewing Loft

I love it!

Keep your eyes peeled, the skirt how to and pattern will be coming later next month when we kick things into high gear for easy summer dressing. It’s gonna be busy!

  1. Love that lobster print… and you made the hat match the skirt! How cool. Too bad this didn’t come out last year though. Now, my finances won’t allow the purchase of the material. 🙁
