I found 5 yards of this lovely yellow seersucker for $2 at my church's garage sale! I have been dying for a higher waisted gathered skirt, so this is what I did with it!


It is fully lined and has a side-seam zipper.


Thanks,
loveelizabeth.

Looks great!  Smiley

Seersucker is such a great summer fabric, and the yellow is perfect for this skirt design. You did an amazing job  on the side zipper, too.

oh how cute! I love that style, I think it will make me look giant though.... Cheesy

Did you wing it or use a pattern?

Thanks! I winged it... I usually make a pattern but lately whenever I do that it doesn't fit the way I want it to. So I just cut into the fabric instead.
