So it's my first show-off on Craftster, so please be nice!

I made this skirt in the last week, still trying to familiarize myself with my new overlock machine.
Made with some old (old like, 7 years ago lol) pants and a 'gothic' peasant skirt from the same ere.

I am what I am, I be what I be.

I think it is cute.  I like how the black lace and fabric underneath are showing at the bottom.  Good job. Wink 

Is it like a serger you are sewing with?  I have one, have only used it a few times because i'm not sure what to do with it really yet, it has a lot of instructions, I also don't have a lot of different fittings for it or enough thread a the moment.  I have a sewing machine, I seem to use it more.  I may use my serger more often if I actually have the money to buy some fabric and patterns to try and make something.  Right now I only use my sewing machine for repairing my clothes or little things i've been practicing on and reconstructing some old clothes, mostly experimentation.

Love this skirt!
It's kind of funny because I think I owned the exact same pair of pants and have been meaning to turn them into a skirt for a very long time. The pants are in several pieces scattered around the house. Did yours have d-rings and zippers too?
Anyways, very nice work Smiley

Love the skirt. I just got an overlock machine in December and I am still practicing too. I have yet to complete a project with it.

Good job! My 15 year old would totally love this. Might have to make one and "rock it" for her! Smiley
