It's been quite a while since I posted anything, but here's a skirt I completed today. It was a pretty quick and straightforward project - two layers of vinyl cut like a circle skirt using my hip measurement for the inner circle, edged in bias binding, and a jersey waistband. I can do a tutorial if anyone is interested  Smiley

I've seen photos of these skirts before and figured I'd try making one of my own after I found this great translucent pink vinyl for $1.99 a yard.



The two circles laid out, ready for a waistband, which proved to be a little difficult to sew on because of how much less flexible than fabric the vinyl is and because I was too lazy to put tissue paper under it so it would feed well Tongue



There's a little more info on my blog (mainly a story about using dry erase markers on vinyl): http://as-i-sew.blogspot.com/2012/05/turns-out-frosted-pink-vinyl-and-dry.html

As usual, thanks for looking! All comments, questions, critiques are welcome.

Yes, I'll wear it out dancing. It moves really well since it's a circle skirt.

It's a great material and it looks great for being difficult to put together.
