I was driving around with my partner the other day, turned, and said "I want to make a skirt." Problem is all of my fabric (was) about an hour away in storage. We went to Hobby Lobby and I picked out some fabric, with chiffon recommended by Quinn because - apparently - the polka dots were too "loud." psh.

paneled skirt with tie closure (because I'm no good at zippers...). The chiffon was SO evil to cut and sew. I needed to hem it but it was impossible to do, so I used some iron on interfacing type tape and then zigzagged over it. I want to say it looks better than in the photo but maybe it doesnt. hahah I think it's about time someone invested in a serger... for me. Zigzagged over the edge of the under fabric as the hem. The tie closure is a bit... funny. I made the last panel a bit larger on each piece in order to do a sort of invisible seam but then accidentally added it to the wrong side on one, so sshhhh. No one needs to know.
