Fiesta Skirt

 This weekend I am in Paducah, Kentucky for one of my best friend's wedding. Also home of the fabulous Hancock's of Paducah Fabric Store. Hoping I can stop by there sometime, too. I made this skirt to wear to her Fiesta Themed Rehearsal Dinner! Believe it or not I got that linen-like fabric on super sale! It's so fun, I think! And it doesn't really wrinkle. Score.
 Here it is without the belt. I used this tutorial and this one as a guide as well. I LOVE skirts like this right now and now I know how to make them! This is the first skirt I've ever made! I wish I had used a little more fabric so it would have a more gathered look, but I'll know for next time. 
I think when paired with that slouchy tank from Forever21, the belt makes the outfit look more complete.

I will be uploading this to Crafterhours' Skirt Week! She has different Flickr pools to upload your skirt to; I'll be uploading mine to the Full Skirt Pool even though it didn't turn out that full! You should join me in making a fun summer skirt and uploading to Skirt Week, too!

Okay, so this is just gorgeous! The belt compliments your skirt perfectly and brings the look together just so. And, hello, can I mention how amazing this looks on you? Very nice work! Jen @
