I found some really cute contemporary japanese print fabrics and fell in love. I usaully like more traditional stuff but these were so cute.  The first is a simple a line skirt. The color is not one I normally wear but I love it because of the print!

The skirt modeled by my shapeless dress form:

The second is a straight skirt. Not quite an a-line but not a pencil skirt either. I love pencil skirts but never wear heels so this is a compromise.

The fabric:

Let me know what you think! I wanted to make something a little more funky but the fabric was so busy I didn't want it to be too much. I have more fabric (tradtional patterns) so if you have ideas please share. I think next I will make a wrap skirt.

Where did you get the fabric? (especially the black one)  I love both the skirts, the ribbon and the ric rac are a nice touch they really make them unique.  Good job Smiley

Those are really nice; I love the fabric for the first ones. Where did you get all of the Japanese fabric you have?

thanks everyone. I live in Hawaii and there are lots of japanese people here so they carry japanese fabric everywhere. I'm thinking of buying it by the bolt and selling it. Would you buy some if I sold it for $6.50 a yard?

beautiful.  I love the black one as I adore versatile clothes (i.e. wear to work and play).  I think I could wear to work if I wore a conservative jacket (black, of course) with it.

the fabric is exquisite.

i'm officially in love with that black fabric. it looks hot as the skirt, but i think it would also look totally fab as a fitted shirt with short puffy sleeves  Cheesy
