So I've been ill the past week and a bit with what my doctor thought was pneumonia - it wasn't! Just a really bad chest infection.. Anyway.. I was up at midnight making this skirt as I have turned nocturnal, I hemmed it this afternoon and voila! A verry poofy gathered waist skirt - No pattern used! It's really simple to make...

- Cut two rectangles from a piece of old vintage fabric my mum gave me and sewed them right sides together
- Finished the open seams with a zigzag stitch
- Rolled one of the long edges over leaving a small gap to insert elastic
- Cut the elastic to the size I wanted and threaded it through using a drawing pin
- Sewed the elastic together
- Sewed the hole closed
- Sewed a (rolled) hem
- Wore it Smiley







As you can see, it is VERY short! I am wearing a pair of shorts underneath and I'm hoping to buy some pretty lace to sew around the edge at the bottom to give it more character and LENGTH!

I added the lace!









C&C please!!

It is quite short! But I love the blue floral fabric that you used Smiley It reminds be of a pattern on china, and I think the skirt will be even cuter with lace on the bottom.

Also, you sewed that while sick with something resembling pneumonia?!?!!! Awesome dedication to crafting Wink

It's so cute!  Love the fabric and I think it'll look adorable with a lace hem.   Smiley

This is soooo cute, and you look unbelievably great in it.   Lace at the hem is just going to multiply the previous two sentiments by like 239843487 so great job ha ha Cheesy
