well it looks like something

I found this fabric on clearance at Joann's and had visions of it being a great skirt! Only problem? I've never made anything in my life before! The fabric was sheer, so on top of making a skirt, I had to figure out to sew in a lining too.

With the help of...Freshly Picked I was able to figure it out.

Now for the finished product's debut...

{sorry for no one would want to see what's going on with my face and hair!}

What do you think?


  1. Wow...great first go! This looks professional!

  2. You made it? Wow. The fabric does look great. Now, I really, really wish I could sew. I think I remember how to... Hmmm. This is so cute!

  3. aww thanks ladies! i'm very shocked it turned out to actually look like a skirt!

    professional? not that good i dont think! but i cant wait to wear it after my 30 for 30!

  4. Wow that looks so great! I have so much fabric laying around that I bought on a whim, and I've been itching to make them into skirts and was too scared, but you've inspired me to give it a try!

  5. That looks great!!! Very nice job - I love the fabric choice!

    I was thinking since there is no clothing shopping during the 30 for 30 I should do some fabric shopping and clothing making!

  6. i sorta thought the same thing...technically i am not buying any clothing if it's just fabric right? and i spent 7.50 for a yard and half...and still have tons left over for something else!

  7. That looks great! I need to get sewing for spring!!


I love comments just as much as Diet Coke.
