I finished this skirt yesterday.

Pardon the allergies face. Also, I was trying to demonstrate how to make my camera zoom.

It's a simple tiered skirt made from a pattern in a Japanese sewing book called Winter Clothing in One Day. I'm going to use it for daily wear and to get a Mori Girl look.

It looks really good on you. You've chosen a shape that suits you and it looks well finished.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

It is beautiful and does look good on you. Nice work!  And I like your sweater very much, it goes so well with the skirt.

I had a kind of a dejavu:  I have a jersey fabric with exactly the same pattern! I wonder if I could make a skirt like this out of it. What do you think?

Thank you!
That's funny you have the same fabric as jersey. I think you could still make it but it would hang very differently. I don't know what it would look like really. Maybe look at some t-shirt skirts to see how it would fall?

Very well sewed  Smiley I think, though, that a bit shorter would more suit you. Nevertheless - really nice  Smiley

Thanks for the advice. It is a bit shorter than the picture looks. I'm very short so it was taken from an angle. I guess if someone sees me from an angle it'll look that long anyway. I think I'm going to make something else with that pattern so I'll take that in to account.
