I made the Simplicity 2258 (http://www.simplicity.com/p-5829-misses-easy-to-sew-skirts-shorts.aspx) skirt last night! It was easy and I think it came out well. I have made skirts before but I had never sewn with rayon fabric before so I didn't know what to expect. (I got it on clearance at Joann's, $4.99 a yard I think?) It was actually not bad at all. My only complaint is that it's not as swingy as I would want. Do you know what I mean by "swingy" or do I sound crazy?
I LOVE that it has pockets! I haven't figured out how to tie the tie where it will lay kind of flat. Any suggestions?
I really want to make more skirts now but like I said, I like skirts that move more. I need to look for more skirt patterns like that.
Here are some pictures I took of it:
