Since I've been dubbed "Class Seamtress" among my friends (mainly because nobody else sews or admits that they do), this girl gave me a skirt that she had. It was a pretty simple skirt: fabric and elastic waistband.

Here's what I came up with the first time around:

My machine doesn't make button holes because it's older than I am; I handsewed it myself so pardon the crappyness.

When I gave it to her, I realized that it was too big. SO this is the final product:

I found a roll of lace in my house so I thought it would look pretty  Smiley

I'm really proud of myself because it's the first time I made anything remotely close from scratch.

Tell me what you think!  Cheesy

Crafting is in my blood! Just not in my geneology.

Did you use a pattern?  And if so, which?

(To The Tune of "The Llama Song")Here's a needle, there's a needle, and some yarn between the needles, cast on, knit, purl, always knitting, knitty, knitty, purl.

Wow great job! I can't imagine how it was ever a skirt, looks born to be a vest. I've been meaning to make a vest for a while now, excellent inspiration!
