I got a bunch of really cheap patterns awhile back and some fabulous Heather Bailey fabric, so I thought I'd try my hand at making myself a quick skirt.
I actually altered the skirt from what the pattern dictated. It wanted the front to be a seam, and I didn't think it looked very good. Plus, I like there to be a band at the waist (the better to hold my tummy in... :) ) and this one didn't have one. So, I changed where the zipper went so the front part of the skirt didn't have a seam and added a 3 inch wide waistband at the top.
I'm loving my new skirt!
