My daughter who is soon to be sixteen has discovered the skirt. Well, she's had skirts before of course, but now she wants me to make her new ones.
I'm not hard to convince of course so I made her these.

The first one is made from vintage fabric (late 50's I think) that was probably ment to be curtains, but I think it worked just as well as a skirt. It's cotton.



This is made in a cotton wool blend and is really soft.



She loves them. Hope you like them too.

I'm in love with the second one too - did you use a pattern?

No, just waist and hips measurements. The pleats (?) take care of everything. Same thing with the upper one. It's made in the exact same way, only not ironed pleats.
