I made the Simplicity 2258 (http://www.simplicity.com/p-5829-misses-easy-to-sew-skirts-shorts.aspx) skirt last night! It was easy and I think it came out well. I have made skirts before but I had never sewn with rayon fabric before so I didn't know what to expect. (I got it on clearance at Joann's, $4.99 a yard I think?) It was actually not bad at all. My only complaint is that it's not as swingy as I would want. Do you know what I mean by "swingy" or do I sound crazy?

I LOVE that it has pockets! I haven't figured out how to tie the tie where it will lay kind of flat. Any suggestions?

I really want to make more skirts now but like I said, I like skirts that move more. I need to look for more skirt patterns like that.  

Here are some pictures I took of it:

Nice job!  Love that fabric.  Yes, I know what you mean by swingy - but this one looks cute too.

Good job!  From what I can tell, it's a pretty fitted skirt so I don't know how much swingy you'd have gotten out of that silhouette with any fabric.

I'd say embrace the non flatness of the tie and put it in a bow or a knot!  Smiley
