Well, it doesn't have all the pizazz and theatrics of a circus performer, but I feel slightly acrobatic wearing it! I think cos it's made out of super nice stretchy t-shirting material. :-D


http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j160/loveisa-drug/sewing/KW-skirt-002.jpg craftster resized it a little funny



anyway, I finally made a dent in the larggge lump of Karen Walker fabric I bought yonks ago, and got the courage to make something out of it. It was originally going to become a strapless romper/playsuit thing, (if I added shorts on the bottom) but I decided against it and left it as a skirt :-)

It is a little bit gathered at the front, has a yoke and is unhemmed at the bottom AND I found out how to get an overlocking stitch on my regular sewing machine (except it doesn't do the super handy cutting off of excess material thing that overlockers do)

And I added a cute bow tie thing at the front because I thought it needed a little something extra!

That is really cute! Love the material and skirt reminds me of the black tulip skirts with the bow Zimmermann did for AW06. Just wondering did you make it from a pattern you bought or made or got from somewhere else? I'd love to know what pattern you used to make a similar skirt for myself.
