I took this photo in August, and I'm pretty sure I cut the fabric for this skirt shortly thereafter.
Then, I forgot about it. It sat in pieces for seven months or so, and then Monday, I sewed it together.
I installed my first invisible zipper (which isn't quite invisible, but close!), and chopped six inches off the pattern to make what I think is a very fun skirt.
I have a fairly big stash of the Mendocino line by Heather Ross, and I'm glad I used some of it on this project (and on my quilt, which you can see on the bed). I tried on the skirt with a few different shirts, and this purple is a favorite with the orange.
I used Amy Butler's Barcelona Skirts pattern, and made the A-line version. I love this layered version, and of course, Kara's version is made of awesome. I'm sure I'll use the pattern again. I'm in the mood for skirts at the moment.
It was super easy to put together, once I got around to doing it.
