I think my creativity just died when I finished making this as I've been feeling pretty uninspired since. Long story Sad

 Anyways, the material is from a curtain that I bought in a charity shop and I edged it with a pretty turquoise ribbon. I don't have much of a story to this one, sorry for anyone who enjoys my rambling descriptions.



 I don't normally wear skirts so who knows when I'll actually ever wear this, but if I ever get a photo of me wearing it, I'll stick it up here Smiley

I think you were right to put the ribbon on, it's a cute skirt now.

it looks gorgeous, and now I am singing "My Favourite things" from The Sound of Music!
I just love the green and blue together.

I think that you chose a nice simple style to let the fabric do all the talking!

It is lovely...the colors are fabulous and you did add your own touch with the ribbon trim...it would be so cute with a summer sweater set...I would pick white, but that blue is also striking!

Well done!

This is beautiful i want to get more skilled at making skirts. I still don't feel comfortable sewing them without a pattern.

Thanks everyone!

 Mrsflibble, I'll definitely try to get a shot of me wearing it at some stage Smiley

 ale0059, I didn't use much of a pattern to make this, it was actually pretty easy to make, I just googled circle skirt and used about 3 different tutorials.
