I've been lurking for aaaaaaaages and this thread just got me desperate to dust off my sewing machine and get going again!  For the first dress I found a gorgeous colour but they didn't have 5 yards left, only 3.75 so I couldn't make a circle skirt.  I just measured the waist, halved it and then laid out the length and made a long A-line skirt.  It took me a minute to realise that I had to sew the straps onto the RIGHT side since I had made the skirt differently  Embarrassed but after that it was plain sailing.  No overlocker, just the zigzag on my old machine.  I loved the fabric and I am LOVING trying new ways of tying it.  Here are two taken late last night after I'd just finished the dress  Cool

and the back of that one - bit wonky, sorry!

I made another one today that was black, knee length with a circle skirt.  But it was a cheap nasty fabric and the waist seems a bit big - seems like a common problem when you do the full circle skirt.  Not keen on all the fullness either so I'll use the leftovers to make one with a pencil skirt I think.

Thank you x 1 000 000 for putting this tutorial on here, I can't wait to make a red one too.
