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!
