so I was in need of making something... and so i found that i had this fabric and i decided to make a skirt...

as you can see this is coming along so so. I was thinking it might make a nice dress. I still have yet to hem the top and bottom seams and i should probably line it. it can also be taken in a bit more towards the top and waist. I could add a top part to it and make it a sort of summer dress as i don't have very much of the fabric left... or I can just wear a blouse that goes a bit better with it. (I should be making a "Gibson Girl" blouse soon...)

I really like this as a skirt.

The high waist is inspired and with the right blouse and accessories I think that would make great outfit.

Good job.

Well in my head I see something short-sleeved (puffed methinks) with a some detail at the collar. Here are some pics I swiped from Topshop:

simple...


This one with a shirred front is pretty cool, I haven't seen that done before...


But if it were me, since the skirt has classic lines and is plain fabric, I'd go for a bold contrasting pattern to the skirt with exaggerated buttons and sleeves (a la Vivienne Westwood ), I'd probably wear it with this...


Hope that gives you some ideas! Grin

I agree with i_squared_u, the fashionista.  <33

I love the last top, but any would be nice with it.

Great job on the skirt.  Will you post again with the final outfit?  (Hinthint.)
