Okay, I made this awhile ago but here goes: so I bought red and white gingham fabric and red with white polka dot fabric at Joann's. My boyfriend's band was playing two shows in two days near me and one of them was a "punk rock prom". It wasn't really a prom, it was just an excuse for kids to dress up. I used to hear about this show when I was in high school but never went. So I made a skirt real fast and wore it with a zipper up corsetty thing on top and took photos of Mike's band the whole time. Whoot!

First part/in progress:

I didn't like the length and It needed more awesomeness.

Finished!

So I chopped a few inches off the bottom and added the red fabric with white polka dots and made it more ruffly in the back. The band is from a dark red tshirt that was huuuuge.

Side shot.

It's still a little big, needs to grip on my hips better but I can fix that later. People liked it and I do too.


See? They're dressed up too. Mike is the guy on the top right.



Thanks for looking  Grin

Your skirt is really fun, and I'm jealous that your area has something cool like that (when I was in school we either didn't have things like this, or the people who went didn't inform me.... both are possible)

Anyway, the band is cute in their little ties, too. Especially the one in the sweater. b/c I have a secret obsession with men with beards. Also men with glasses. and men who wear sweaters. So..... your friend is precious, basically.

But that's besides the point. I'm glad you had a fun time!
