I must say I am very proud of this skirt. Making clothing has always intimidated me, but this turned out awesome. I read a few tutorials online about how to make drawstring skirts and then just went for it.  It was made for a swap and the style (drawstring that is in back, paneled with applique in front) was inspired by a skirt from her wist.
