I made these two skirts out of fabric i got at walmart on the clearance rack. I think the zippers were more than the fabric.  Cheesy

Considering I drafted the pattern myself, im pretty happy how they turned out.

The green one was actually supposed to be a circle skirt, but it came out wrong, so i redid it into this.
k, enough babbling:

Sorry it's so image obese, but these are the first skirts i've ever made!

comments and constructive criticism are welcome.
 Smiley enjoy.

They are both adorable! Great work, I think now I am inspired to make some skirts for myself. Yours seem to be just the right length and fluffiness for spring! I like the multicolored one especially. Can I ask how much fabric each took to make? And was the zipper difficult to put in? (gearing up to get some skirt making supplies of my own! Grin)

for the multicolored skirt, i bought a yard of it, but i had about 1/4 of a yard left over. I'd still buy a whole yard just in case.

The green one, i had to get two yards because the green fabric was see-through, so i got a white lining fabric to go with it.

The zippers were SUPER EASY.  Cheesy Everyone seems to be afraid of the invisible zippers, but i actually found them easier to do [the multicolored one has an invisible zip].

good luck with your skirts and be sure to post them!!!  Wink

I love the green one!  And I think you should absolutely wear that blue shirt with it!  I think they are mismatched enough to match now, if that makes any sense  Tongue

Oh wow! I love both of these skirts. Hmm, I'm have a dire need of some skirts of my own for school so I might make some like these. The fabric is so cool too!
