I've made plenty of skirts for my two girls, but never one for me. I'm afraid of zippers and the size of my hips. But I wanted a big polka dot skirt so bad that I decided I could wait no longer. It wasn't nearly as bad as I thought. It has an elastic waist band (no scary zipper), which wasn't my first choice, but it was also the easiest choice.
I think it turned out pretty cute. I call it my "I don't have anything to wear to church tomorrow!" skirt, because it only took me about an hour and a half to make Saturday night. I thought about taking pictures and writting up a tutorial, but gave up half way through. There are already tons of free skirt patterns on the web anyway. My favorite thing is it only cost me about 20$ to make (2 yards of fabric and elastic). It would have cost less if I could have settled for sale fabric (I hate spending 10$ a yard on fabric!!!) but when I find what I am looking for I gotta grab it up. I have a quarter of a yard left over, what do you think... matching bag or matching skirt for my little "C"?
