This is a a-line skirt done on a sewing machine made from African fabric. It';s the first item i've made myself that I actually think is brilliant lol, despite having to alter the usual pattern as there wasn't enough of teh fabric.

As you can see I don't post much, but I had to tell you what a beautiful skirt that is!!  Love that fabric and the design of the skirt.  Great job!

Nice! I bought a tone (hehe) of dutche wax print african fabric when I was in london this summer, but I haven't done much with it yet. This looks great!

I love this skirt! The colors and the print are fantastic, not to mention the sewing! My boyfriend brought me some beautiful batik fabric from Ghana this past summer...I'm terrified to ruin it so it sits in my fabric box 'til I have the nerve!
