I call this a gypsy skirt, I'm pretty sure by definition it isn't. What I did was cut at uneven angles and then gather in the corners of the base. Tada, skirt complete. This is not a square skirt though, it's just uneven.

Here be the long promised tutorial! Tongue




The Pleated Skirt


Technically I pleated the skirt, but the fabric isn't what you'd usually use for a pleat. It was just a way to gather up the fabric and make one very big sun skirt. There is a hidden belt, it keeps the skirt on my waist instead of my hips, this isn't stretchy fabric. I have to wear a slip or a white under skirt with this because the fabric is see-through. As you can probably tell because I'm not wearing anything like that. lol. I have lots of plans for making a slip... but I haven't yet. I don't want to attach one, in case I might need it for something else.

Thanks for viewing! I'd appreciate comments/criticism/suggestions/endless odes of adoration of my sewing skills *cough cough* Cheesy

I absolutely love the second one!  It's so pretty and flowing.  You did a wonderful job on both of them.

I, too, really like the second one.  The waist on the first isn't for me, as it would draw too much attention to an area I am not so comfortable with.  But the second one has lovely lines and I think it is really neat!
