My friend Judy just celebrated a birthday and I wanted to make her a pretty skirt to wear this summer.  Whereas I like really loud colors and flashy patterns, Judy likes warmer earthtones and traditional styles.  I thought the fabric below fit both our criteria.



Side view:


That's Judy modeling. 

A funny aside, Judy called me up and said she had found the perfect shirt to go with the skirt and when she came over to model the skirt for me, it turned out that she had purchased the exact same blouse I had purchased a few days earlier.  I guess our styles aren't that different after all.

That skirt turned out great. I love that fabric! Where did you get it? Judy's shoes are great, too. Very '40s, which complements the skirt nicely!

Thanks!  The fabric is an Amy Butler pattern, it just looks vintage.  I have just enough left over for a handbag.

I actually just measured her waist and hips and drew an A-line from there - it was super simple.

thats really cool! i like the a line of it- looks good on MOST everyone. And about your friend buying the same shirt- my best friend and i do that alot too. Since we're roughly the same size, whenever we're at a thrift store trying stuff on- we'll tell eachother what the other one has looks awful on them, and then we buy it ourselves.

i remember that. my group of friends in highschool used to "claim" certian items in a store so no one else could buy the same thing, one time my friend did that for a pair of boots that i loved, and my payday was a week ahead of hers - so i bought them. she was SO mad... i don't think she talked to me for a week, but she got the boots anyways and made a point of going "well, they were mine in the first place" if anyone commented that we had the same ones. haha...
