This is a circle skirt I made with a layer of black tulle over it. The hem is really crappy because the tension of the thread was messed up (completely my fault) so it doesn't look very professional. I didn't have enough fabric to make a circle skirt because it was a long rectangle so I cut off the end of the rectangel and sewed it to the side to make it wider. Hope that made sense and if it didn't, that bit of info doesn't really matter anyway.

Anyway. . .

 My legs aren't actually black like the picture makes them look I'm just wearing a pair of lace tights I cut off at the ankle like all those ones you see out there now.

There is no zipper, just a big black button I'm going to sew a tab underneath the opening so it doesn't show my skin. The skirt is kinda short so I probably won't wear it very ofter, I'm just proud of it though.

And yes it's the same fabric I used for my first post  Smiley

Much Love,

Thanks guys. I thought making a circle skirt was rather difficult, but I haven't had much experience. I used a tutorial and though it was a very well explained I still messed up and I eventually just came up with my own instructions  Smiley
I love my Blondie tee-shirt, it's funny though everytime I wear it to school someone always points at it and says "But you're not blonde." and I laugh at their ignorance.
