OK, just now getting really into sewing. I've been doing a lot of reverse engineering of my daughter's clothes for practice (and I really don't want to buy patterns), and this is what I came up with (the only ones that weren't total disasters, anyway!):



Pink circle skirt from an old dress of mine. I think this is the first zipper I've put in since High School Home Economics class. Grin



Gathered jersey skirt with wide waistband from one of my hubby's donated t-shirts. I really like how this one turned out.

Anywhoo, thanks for looking, and I would really love any constructive criticism.

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.
