I got out of school at 1 today, so I though, hmm, what can I do with my polka dot fabric? Make a spiffy skirt, of course! I spent about 4 and a half hours total on it. The red stripe along the bottom is bias tape, one side is pleated, it's got a zipper (my first in a skirt), and a little extended tab closure with safety pins. I'm debating whether or not to put a black ruffle under the bottom hem, so it looks like I've got something on under... the ruffle's edge is zigzagged with red to match the stripe and the polka dots.
Me, and my ugly legs in the skirt. Please forgive my hastily thrown on top. Heh.
I think my bed makes a better model.
Close up of the fabric and the details.
What do you think?
