I made this skirt recently from vintage fabric (the fabric is probably as old as I am...which is 37 yrs old). 
The skirt is just two rectangles stitched up the sides and an elastic waistband.  I didn't even hem the bottom (just left the selvedge). 

Not a pretty pic of me, so just focus on the skirt  Smiley

I like the skirt, a little patterny for my taste-but it's good enough for kickin' it around the house.  I think it would have been cuter paired with a purple tank, but all I had was black.

Normally I abhor gaudy floral, but this skirt reminds me of something vaguely middle eastern and I really like it.  Nicely done. =]
