Hi! I just made a skirt!
It's a very simple skirt, just a gathered rectangle, which I made in a day or two. It even has a zipper! (I’m overcoming a fear of zippers.)
The fabric is a cotton print that I bought a few years ago and didn't get around to using. (The truth: I procrastinated so long I outgrew the original pattern.)
The colors are a little brighter in real life.
I tried to take interesting pretty pictures and ended up looking stoned or trying-to-look-sultry in all of them, and had to settle for a “This is pretty much what the skirt looks like, guys,” photo.
I had to crop my head out because I looked like I was waiting for my final nine grams of lead.
But that's pretty much what the skirt looks like, guys.
It's pretty comfy and I like the length. It earned a “Not as cock-eyed as all the other skirts you've sewed” from my older sister (who disapproves of nearly everything I do, from listening to Paramore to considering a career in the Navy), and when I wore it to a swing dance, a man old enough to be my grandfather told me I was the hottest math major he'd ever met. So I guess it's a success?
What do you guys think? Comments and criticisms are always appreciated!
