I saw this unicorn fabric in the store over six months ago and bought it, with no clue towards what I was going to do with it. I'd  never made a pencil skirt before so I decided to give it a try. I'm super in love with it!!






This is another skirt I made. I was making up the pattern as I went a long, and it was such a headache to make. I think I may have come up with an easier way to do it though. So I may redo in a different color scheme. Also, please ignore the blah expression on my face. My camera was annoying me.

Oh, wow!  I love the 2nd one too Smiley  Blues are TOTALLY my fave color scheme.  Is it made with stretch jersey?  I have some of that stuff laying around that I've been meaning to make many things out of, now I have yet another idea!

Both skirts are fab but I love the second one! If you do come up with an easier to use pattern (I have all the headaches I need right now) please please post it!

I love the second one also!  The layers and angle of the fabric makes it so interesting and easy on the eyes! At least you got a beautiful skirt in exchange for the headache it gave you while making it!
