I am so proud that I finally managed to make a half decent skirt.
Before, I've tried but I've never found the right material to make it look nice. It's either been too thin, not right for a skirt, hard to sew or something else. I've made them, but never been able to wear them in public. I will definately wear this in public!
Then I stumbled across this fabric & loved it, so I thought "you know what, i will make a skirt today Smiley"
I followed a pattern, it was a Burda one I think [if anyone wants the number, I can find out for you]
It took me about an hour and a half, which was pretty good for me!

So here is the skirt [it looks a little wonky - but it isn't really!]:

This is the close up of the zip I put in [without a zipper foot Smiley] & the fabric. I know the fabric hasn't been matched up right, but I don't mind too much cos I kind of like the way it mis-matches together. & I kind of mucked up the zip and fabric, but considering the skirt sits quite high on me, it will be covered by a top so it doesn't matter too much! & I know I still need to cut some threads, but I was so excited about showing you guys I couldn't wait!

And then this is an action shot, sorry about the quality of it, but I was home alone & it was the best I could do!
Normally, I wear stuff right baggy on my hips, but I like the way the skirt fits me for some reason Smiley

Thanks for looking Smiley

That's pretty and it looks great on you!
I can't tell, does it have a waistband?

Mosquito - No it doesn't have a waistband [from the last picture it looks like it does though!]. The pattern I followed included a waistband, but I decided not to include it because I thought it was thick enough.

Thanks for the replies Smiley

It looks really good.  I've always favored houndstooth.

Nice job.  I tend to like skirts without waistbands.
