I made this skirt after falling in love with the fabric, but I've decided that I don't like how it looks on me, so I've put it up for auction on eBay.

Such a shame, if I was 5kg lighter it would look great, but my post-baby body isn't coming to the party... Sad

I made it in a full A-line wrap-around style using a really old pattern from the 70s. I added a neat little tie about 10 inches down from the waist so that the front panel doesn't fly open and show your undies to the world!

I love what you added to the opriginal pattern and the fabric choice is amazing - I would so bid on this if I thought I could squeeze myself into it lol.

I love the skirt. It looks like you did a wonderful job at constructing it. If you don't mind me asking, what type of fabric did you use?

I would love to do a personal swap for any kimono/yukata/japanese fabric or marimekko fabric you may have! PM me if interested Smiley
