So I decided to actually make myself a skirt.  I can't remember the last time I made myself clothing.  I was inspired by a shirt I got from Hot Topic.  I got the shirt and green and black striped socks from Hot Topic.  I mean who can resist a red-headed fairy wearing a St. Patty's Day outfit.  Okay, I couldn't, LOL.

Anywhoooo, here's the skirt...







Detail of the hem's stitching


Detail of some of the fabrics

Here was my inspiration:

Here is the tutorial I used:

It uses a heck of a lot of squares.  But I think it was worth it.  I serged all the seams so it didn't take too long to put together.

That is super cute!  And I love the outfit altogether.  I'm working up the courage (and the fabric collection) to use that tutorial.
