This skirt is by far one of my favorite creations. It's rather simple and took me all of about 1 hour to make from cut to sew (haven't hemmed yet). I have had this fabric in my stash for about 3 years or more. Never knowing exactly what I was going to make with it. I actually initially thought about making some kind of handbag, but I thought it was just too pretty and deserved to be something more than a bag. But I didn't think I had a enough fabric to be much else. I think I may have right at a yard. My buddy Kay actually cut the skirt and showed me that it could be a pleated skirt. I was like wow, I didn't see that. I needed to use a contrasting waistband, which I used a stretch cotton and contrasting pocket.
The fabric is by Alexander Henry and its called "La Dolce Vita", from 2008. The print and details in the fabric are amazing. Its a retro print which makes it even more funky.
I really love how it turned out.
