I made this last night and today. It took way longer that I'm sure it should have but I'm still a baby stitcher. Smiley I had to piece this all together because the fabric wasn't quite big enough but I HAD to have a skirt out of it.  Tongue As ling as you don't look too closely it looks good. It really should have been lined but I couldn't figure out how and now I finished it, I'll just have to wear a slip.  Shocked I put some buttons at the bottom to add some cuteness. OMG I love my button foot! Here are the pics.




Close up of the buttons.

I love that fabric, and the skirt is so pretty! I would think that the piecing was normal if you hadn't mentioned it - looks great!

That's adorable! Did you use a pattern or make it up as you went?

Thanks everyone! I am really quite proud of this one. Smiley

dawt: I just made it up as I went and prayed that it ended up looking like a skirt. Wink

You're kidding?! You are one brave but very talented soul, girlie, I never would have guessed it!

I'm a reborn "baby stitcher" (love that term, thanks for letting me borrow it) and recently made a bib-style apron for a swap using a pattern (and lots of seam binding, ugh!), which I hadn't done in years. It took me about 10-hours to sew that baby, so my hat's off to you for knocking out such an adorable skirt in one evening. Really, you rock!
