I am so happy with my new skirt. This is the first time I have ever made something for me that I am truly pleased with the results. Froggy's clothes always turn out great but no so my projects. What makes it even more amazing is that I designed the pattern myself combining two very different patterns. I think the total cost for the skirt was approximately $8 because all I had to buy was the zipper and interfacing for the waistband. The fabric came from my stash, a piece I had purchased ages ago for a different dress pattern that never got made. I still have enough of the fabiric left to make a matching dress for Froggy if she wants one. It is long like all my skirts and full at the bottom so I can walk but it is fitted through the hips with a back zipper rather than an elastic waist. This makes it much more flattering. I can't wait to try it again in a fabric with more drape.
