I've been looking at Craftster for years now, making things all the while, but never posting them. So I decided after I made this last skirt I just had to do it. Smiley

I made this skirt for a Katy Perry concert I was attending with my younger sister. She wanted us all to dress up and I thought it was a fantastic excuse to make something new. So the Katy Perry theme was the reasoning behind the strawberries. I don't think I had worn this much pink since I was under the age of 5, but it was pretty fun.

It turned out a lot better than I anticipated, especially since I had never tried to make a highwaisted skirt before or one with a zipper, and I didn't use a pattern. There were a few little mistakes along the way, but all in all I love it. Now whether I have the balls to wear it out and not just to a goofy concert, we will just have to see about that. Smiley

Thanks for looking!
