So I was at Walmart the other day looking for some simple black fabric to make a skirt to wear to an interview I had last Monday. Going through the fabrics, I found this lightweight cotton in black and in brown that was only $1/yard. I also found a pink plaid-type print. The best part is this one was on clearance .50/yard. I got like 4 yards of each fabric. I also picked up two patterns that I wanted to try, one was $2, the other was way more $13. When I got home i realized She only charged me for 1 pattern, the cheaper one! I really did come home with some good deals.

Anyways, on to the skirt. I made this trying to make it kind of like an A-line skirt. I had no idea how to make it so I kinda just cut out what i thought it should look like. I made a waist band. Then cut out the skirt shape I wanted, and attached the two. I really like how the sides are a bit longer, it makes it hang nicely. I am rather pleased with it Smiley
It took me only like 45 min altogether, with my sister screaming at me to go to bed already since it was 11:30pm.  Now on to the pictures, let me know what you think


Here's the 1st pic I took in the mirror before I decided to try the self timer:

The skirt itself:



Side views:
(it looks longer in the 1st picture, but its really knee legnth)




Close up of fabric:



As you can tell the fabric is a bit see through so I made the skirt two layers and I wore black spandex shorts underneath just in case.
I also liked how it looked without the edges hemed.


thanks for looking!

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box
