I made this skirt about a year ago, but yesterday was the first time I got a decent photograph of it.

I made it without a pattern because the shape is super straightforward: A rectangle for the waistband and a super long rectangle for the gathered skirt. It has a center-zip in the back and off-white lining because this fabric is very sheer.





I've worn it at work a couple times, and a few people have told me they love it (and even asked where they could get one Smiley)

Thanks for looking!

It's very pretty on you!  I love the color!  It reminds me of Jennifer Gray's dress at the end of Dirty Dancing.  Very flirty and romantic, but still totally work appropriate.  It's perfect!
