As the title says, i made a post with some skirts i made during the last three years. i made some more but gave them away, mostly without taking photos... i really like skirts, i wear them nearly every day, same with dresses because i cant stand long trousers. though i wear some shorts, so i included my trousers in this post, because there arent much  Cheesy



a layered ruffle skirt with creme lace and a belt, the fabric is eyelet embroidered, forgot to say: this was made with a pattern from patrones magazine



a Beetlejuice inspired underbust skirt made of white and black striped cotton twill


"gypsy punk" capri pants, made of corduroy and jacquard, with tiny tassels and fringe trim at the hem


an ancient inspired layered ruffle skirt, the top founce is asymmetric, i added a trim at the lower edge of the yoke that ends in two tasses


a bodycon military jersey skirt with red piping and golden crest shank buttons



Steamy, lacy bloomers, with a military twist, made of sateen and viscose lace at the back, the piping and the buttons


my "Lampshade skirt", originally a pleated skirt, but it looked awful and i sewed a band to the lower edge to create a kind of bubble skirt


a pleated zipper skirt, if the zippers are open a pleat with self-painted pink bats comes out, as closure theres a hook and eye and two satin ribbons for tying


my beloved gartered newspaper skirt, the design is lip service but i didnt like the original because of the pleather, it has three ruffles made of newspaper print jersey, i sewed on lace at the edges, the yoke got a gartered shape and i sewed on eyelet tape and added buckles to it for possible gathering


a miniskirt made of this amazing concert poster fabric, i dewed on hook and eye take as closure


black and green striped skirt with some "bondage" straps, its really really old, the stripes dont match at the yoke Embarrassed

hope you like it and thank you for looking!!

These are all amazing! o__o
But I think my favorites would have to be the two newspaper ones. I think I'm going to have to get my hands on some newspaper fabric  now...hehe.

I love what you've done with the pleated skirt. I like pleats but they always looks so grandma-ish to me. Yours looks anything but!
