I sew more than dresses...

Just in case you thought that I only know how to make dresses here's a little skirt I did.

I didn't even use a pattern.  I thought the border print was so pretty so I just bought enough to go around my body plus extra, cut out a rectangle with the bottom on the border, slimmed the rectangle up a bit at the top, sewed the side seams, created a casing for some elastic, hemmed the bottom and, tah diddily dah, that was it, done~

I think it was a last minute thing I threw together for some family function actually.

It's made with cotton and is very simple.  Obviously the embroidery is the only thing it has going for it in terms of style, but I think it's cute and it works when I need a pretty but casual skirt.

Sometimes you just have to let the fabric speak. You and your skirt look great.

The fabric is lovely - it makes a great skirt.

Gorgeous! I love your fabric choice. I also love that you're wearing it with a belt! I made an elastic casing skirt for myself this spring but I don't like the way the waist looks... I've got to try it that way. Thanks for sharing!
