I jumped on the bandwagon, too. It seems like everyone has a high-waist skirt now.
Burda 7741
My roommate took the model-pose picture of me. Also notice my almost-ripe tomatoes in front of me (I've never been able to keep a plant alive long enough for it to bear fruit)
Anyway, this pattern has an amazingly hideous skirt pattern with a "bib", but also this lovely item. It was pretty easy to make, I'm still not an expert on making even pleats, but it turned out good in the end I think. I got the fabric on the clearance rack at Joann. I always seem to find the cuter fabric on clearance at Joann, the regular-priced stuff there can be so ugly I want to cry.
I'd love to know what you think!

It's really cute, I like the button detail on the front.
Congrats on your tomatoes! lol
p.s. you might want to put the link in the post instead of just the edit area (I almost didn't see it)

It's cute! I also like the buttons.

PS -- It's not working because you used the wrong link. Imageshack has changed how they display the various links, and now to get the direct URL, you have to click the "+ Advanced Linking" at the very bottom of the page. The line that pops up below after you click that is the URL you want to use for displaying images.

You are a genius! I haven't posted on Craftster in awhile, things change I guess.
Thanks a bunch for the comments, it's a slow day at work, so it helps.
I almost used fabric-covered buttons on the front, but I saw these guys and thought it might make the skirt a little more interesting.

Looks great, and great on you as well! I think the pleats look great and the button color compliments so well.
I love the color, awesome find. Yay for Joann's clearance section, And I hear ya on the selection thing too.
