I made this skirt on friday Smiley I am in love with it. Sorry about the poor photo but I keep forgetting to get a daylight one.

It is 3 layers of fabric sewn together, then "quilted" in straight lines. once all the lines have been sewn in, you then cut through the first two peices of fabric, inbetween the sewn lines! If that makes any sense :-) I did a class here in Perth with a lovely lady named Jody, to learn this technique :-)

I used a plain green poly cotton, Navy lace and 100% cotton fabric (Memento in Midnight by Amy Butler)

this skirt really isnt a cheap skirt as it has 6 meters of fabric in it, but if you found some cheap fabrics it would become a lot more budget friendly :-) This is the first time I have put in a zip as well!

It looks fascinating, especially with a pattern on the fabric.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Great picture, I think. Shows the print and the peekthrough of the bottom layer. Horizontal stripes or vertical stripes would work just fine, I think. Great colors!

looks wonderful! how do you keep it from fraying?

It's custom the bias, so only fray's a little - which adds to the look  Cheesy
