Here's a skirt and belt thing I made with some fabric from the 70's.

I really like this.  Did you use a pattern if so which one?

No, I didn't use a pattern.  It's just a little wider on the bottom and cut on the bias.  The belt is made by folding over a 10in. piece of fabric and sewing it down the side.  It also has some beaded trim on the ends.  Sorry I couldn't be more help.

I have material that's very similiar to that except it's off white with black flowers.  I envisioned a skirt similiar to yours but have been too afraid to cut it! Embarrassed  If I build up the nerve I hope it looks as good as yours!!

Are you sure that fabric is from the 70s? I could've sworn I saw it at JoAnn's! Maybe I stepped back in time! lolol! Well it looks cute whatever decade it's from.

The whole skirt looks like real vintage. Nice job.

Even though I'm not too big on the whole 70's thing, that skirt is gorgeous. I love the belt, and how the skirt just flows  Cheesy
