I'm teaching myself to sew since my wonderful hubby bought me a sewing machine for Christmas! I bought the book Sew What Skirts
but ended up putting it on the shelf for about a month since I didn't quite understand it yet. I made a few things using patterns so I could become somewhat familiar with making something and how they are supposed to go together. Then I bought 5 yards of denim (I'm still not sure what possesed me into buying so much) and I pulled my book off the shelf and this is what I made!http://getchellwedd.topcities.com/frayed.jpg
It's the frayed wrap skirt they have in there. I decided I didn't like the idea of snap tape and found some wonderful brass sun buttons and used those instead. Unfortunately I don't have a very good picture of those and I tried getting a close-up with my awful camera to no avail.
I hope you like it, I do, it's pretty comfy and I'm pretty proud of myself!
