I made this skirt originally intending it to be worn the way it is in the first picture, but then discovered that it has more ways to be worn.. the last one is very 80's-esque, I think..

wow i really like how you can change the skirt depending on your mood. i personally like the longer one, it looks like a retro skirt that people would wear to hollywood premieres.

That's really pretty! There is an indie clothing lable from Vancouver named "alisonwonderland" is that you?

Hey - if you pull the white part of the skirt way up over your boobs - like a tube top - how does it look? I 'm thinking it may make a cute top too;)

nope, not me. too bad, though, that would be awesome ot have an indie clothing label! and I do live in vancouver during the school year.. anyway..

i tried the over the boobs thing as soon as I made it, and it looks really weird. I thought it might be cool, too.. but sadly, nope Sad

This looks great! How did you make the skirt part? Did you use a pattern or did you just go for it? I like the first and second variation best.

Ok, several people have asked for a tutorial so I'll do a really simple one.  for the "skirt" part I cut two pieces of each fabric (my lace and my blue flowered one) in roughly this shape:



The red line should be half of the measurement of where you want that part to hit you, plus a tiny bit.  So if the waistband will end right about the top of your thighs and that's where this part of the skirt will be, make it half of that measurement. Sorry if that's confusing...

the distance from your red line to your purple line is about how long you want your skirt to be, again from the top of where the main fabric starts.

The waistband is best if you use very stretchy fabric. Make it SEVERAL inches smaller than the measurement of your hips, I think I took about 6 inches off mine. Basically just make it really tall (mine is about 21" tall), mine is also two layers thick since it's VERY white fabric.

Next you sew the waistband together, make sure that any sideways stretching parts are either done with a surger or a zig-zag stitch or something that can stretch. You want to make a long skinny tube with your otside and inside pieces sewn together, and then fold half of the tube down inside itself so that there is no more wrong side (does that make sense?)

Then you sew the two sides of your outside skirt together (right sides together) and the same for your inside skirt. Then you pin these together (in their correct positions) and put the waistband over the outside of them, matching up the bottom of the waistband wtih the top of the skirt. You can now stitch these together (the right sides will be together if you've assembled it right), make sure you stretch out the waistband as you stitch it to the skirt part.  Sorry if these were confusing.. it was just a slap-up job. If you have questions, feel free to pm me!
