My first skirt ever!

Ok so that's a lie. I've made skirts before or tried to make them but they always fit funny. I'm not one for patterns and prefer to just free hand it all, then I came across this tutorial and my skirt making luck changed!  I am in love!!!

It's getting closer and closer to summer time and I love me some summer dresses and skirts so I have a feeling I will be making quiet a few of these for myself and Kaylee. I do wish that I had used wider elastic, but I just used what I had on hand, I also omitted the pockets but will be adding them in the next one.

I used part of a vintage sheet that I found not too long ago on a thrifting adventure. The sheet didn't fit any of our beds and I am so in love with the floral print I couldn't not use it. Now I'm off to make Kaylee a skirt. :)

Have a happy Thursday!!
