Okay, I admit that I rarely post on this board, I spend 95% of my time of craftster hanging out on the swap boards, but that's okay.

I made myself a new skirt tonight.


It's my first time putting in a zipper and button!


YAY it works!! 
I got the fabric over a year ago in a lot I bought off LJ simply for ONE of the fabrics in it.  I've given away a lot of the other fabrics, but I loved this denim, and couldn't stand to part with it, but I didn't know what to do with the small piece I had.  Too big for a pillow.  Not enough for clothing.  Didn't match the living room. Not the right dimensions for a bag. etc.
This afternoon it caught my eye when i was working on something else, and I thought "ooooh that'd be a cute skirt!" So I pulled it down and discovered there was just enough for the front of a skirt. (Since I recently lost 15 lbs.) So I rummaged through my stash and found some denim that matched perfectly for the back.
And Voila!  New skirt!

LJ is LiveJournal www.livejournal.com  which is really a blogging website, but there are communities on there with lots of different purposes.  I bought this fabric from a girl who posted in a community for selling and buying fabric and other craft supplies.
