So I was at Walmart the other day looking for some simple black fabric to make a skirt to wear to an interview I had last Monday. Going through the fabrics, I found this lightweight cotton in black and in brown that was only $1/yard. I also found a pink plaid-type print. The best part is this one was on clearance .50/yard. I got like 4 yards of each fabric. I also picked up two patterns that I wanted to try, one was $2, the other was way more $13. When I got home i realized She only charged me for 1 pattern, the cheaper one! I really did come home with some good deals.
Anyways, on to the skirt. I made this trying to make it kind of like an A-line skirt. I had no idea how to make it so I kinda just cut out what i thought it should look like. I made a waist band. Then cut out the skirt shape I wanted, and attached the two. I really like how the sides are a bit longer, it makes it hang nicely. I am rather pleased with it
It took me only like 45 min altogether, with my sister screaming at me to go to bed already since it was 11:30pm. Now on to the pictures, let me know what you think
Here's the 1st pic I took in the mirror before I decided to try the self timer:
The whole outfit I wore:
The skirt itself:
(it looks longer in the 1st picture, but its really knee legnth)
Close up of fabric:
As you can tell the fabric is a bit see through so I made the skirt two layers and I wore black spandex shorts underneath just in case.
I also liked how it looked without the edges hemed.
thanks for looking!
