Hi,

Here's a quick skirt I made the other day when I was feeling very sad. I almost forced myself to make something cheerful, and I have to say, it really did help...
The pattern is based on a tutorial I found on Angry Chicken's website, it's called the 5-minute skirt. Using fold-over elastic for the waist really makes it super duper easy.



I added  2 pleated pockets (a bit hard to see on the above pic) and ricrac detailing:

It is very cheery and the added rick rack is super cute.

I'm not happy, I'm cheerful. There's a difference.

I would definitely wear that skirt.  Your fabric and trim choices are perfect!  I'll have to go over and visit Angry Chicken now.
