I always end up making dresses (they're just so easy to wear!) so this time I decided to try a skirt. I used some fabric from Ikea which is upholstery fabric, but has a nice stiff quality to it that lends itself to the pleats. The pattern came from the Twinkle by Wenlan book. I didn't line it mostly as I could be bothered and because I have enough slips and things to wear underneath it. Anyway here are a couple of pics, let me know what you think!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Thank you both! I really like it but it's just too cold to wear right now. Maybe when it warms up a bit...
