I saw this vintage fabric at a thrift store last week (for $1! Wahoo!), and immediately thought, "That needs to be a skirt." And since I'm not terribly patient, I made it that night. I got the shape by tracing my favorite old skirt and, ahem, adding an inch to the waistline. And since the elastic waist skirts just aren't working with my hips these days, I put a zipper in this one. And it wasn't nearly as terrible as I thought it would be. Fairly smooth, actually. Hooray for that. I see more skirt sewing in my future.
And an action shot just for fun. I loooove that the skirt twirls. I love skirts. I really love twirly skirts. And as much as I adore these boots, I do think this skirt warrants a new pair of shoes, don't you agree? Like these, or these! Ah, a girl can dream.
