For my first skirt, I took inspiration from Alisa Burke's Petticoat Tutorial. I wanted a ruffled skirt with predominantly white and off-white elements. All of the fabric (except for the lining) was from my stash. The buttons are Vans buttons that were extras that came with a pair of my husband's shorts. This is more of a pencil shape than the petticoat, and as a result I had to add a slit up the back to make walking a little bit easier. My only complaint about the whole thing is the zipper (in the back, not pictured). I grabbed an invisible zipper without realizing that it required a special invisible zipper foot (I have a regular zipper foot), so I didn't follow the instructions and it doesn't look great. Not terrible, but not the clean, invisible zipper I wanted. Oh, well. Lesson learned. Here are a couple of detail pics:
Come back tomorrow to have a look at some of the other skirts that were added to the Week 1 pool. And, hey, just because you didn't git'er done last week doesn't mean you can't get a skirt in this week. Better late than never, friend.
