I made this super easy tiered skirt, and I really love it. I made it over the course of two nights while watching T.V. It isn't quite done, I am waiting for someone to help me pin up the hem, but I really wanted to share some pictures.



This picture shows off the shape more. I used a black knit fabric for the top so the the waistband is really stretchy and you can just slip the skirt on. Then I added three tiers of the cotton fabric.

I love the way it came out, though my mom said the waistband makes it look like a maternity skirt. I don't mind, no one sees that part and it is comfy!



And here it is on me. I am so happy with it, and I finished it just in time for all this great weather.

ETA: Here are two new pictures showing a closeup of the fabric. This is some stuff that I got at Jo-Anne's on clearance about a year ago and it sat in my stash for a while. I really like it a lot, and I think it makes the skirt.

That's really pretty! I love the variegated (can you call fabric variegated?) fabric. The way the colors go together is awesome. And I do tend to be partial to peasant-type skirts  Grin

How cute!  And I love the fabric - I'd love to so a close-up of it!

I'm happy with it, too! Bravo to you on a great new skirt for spring/summer!

Nah, I don't think it looks maternity-ish.

The colours are beautiful! It reminds me of sherbet.

The bottom two tiers look like a sunset to me - it's gorgeous.

Have you seen this thread? It's a "skirt hemming epiphany" (for one-womanned hemming).
