This is my second attempt at making a skirt, but my first finished product!  It came out a little wonky but i'm pretty happy with it overall. Its made out of 5 "J" shaped pieces. I got the idea from a skirt that I own, but that one had all different sized "J" pieces and I didn't want to make it too complicated, or take that one apart to see exactly. Let me know what you think! And if you have any tips to make the next attempt better, let me know please! I am just starting to sew!

It looks really nice!  The seams lie flat, which is the thing I had the hardest time on when I made a similar pattern -- mine had a scalloped edge along the bottom and the J-shape was a bit more extreme, but it was almost the same.  I like it!

It looks really nice. I'm still new to sewing and I don't think I could do anything this well. And the color is so pretty!

Fantastic for a first attempt!! Love the belt loop detailing - I wouldn't have been able do that first time. Still can't! :p You should be very proud of yourself. Smiley -x-

Out of curiosity, what type of fastening does it have? Is it a zip or is it just elasticated? Also, how many j shaped pieces did you use to make the entire skirt, I'm considering making one like this for myself if you don't object to me stealing this style.

EDIT: Duh, one of my questions is answered already...never mind me.

awwww thank you for all the nice comments :-D i really want to try to make one now with a silky fabric.... Smiley

I don't mind at all you steal it! It wasn't really my idea afterall, haha. It actually doesn't have a fastener Lips sealed hahah The waist is just really big enough and the fabric stretchy enough that I can pull it on. It stays on without the belt, but the belt helps it stay flatter at the top. I think I might put it on over my head (less resistance, ahhaha). A zipper or elastic was too daunting for me!! But I was afraid I wouldn't be able to get it on... Good luck if you make one!
