Generally speaking I'm not a big fashion/style blog reader. That said I'm a big fan of Already Pretty which in a style, body image, and then some blog written by a lovely lady named Sally who has a lovely pink Anthro skirt that I've liked since the first time I saw it. Sadly, it was from a few years ago or I likely would have just jumped on their website and ordered myself one. You see while I love to sew I'm also a fan of shopping and am more then willing to just buy something if what I really love already exists. Well already exists and fits well but that my friends is a whole nother can of worms.
this tutorial but liked the way this skirt had the fabric layered rather then gathered. I used light pink cotton lycra as the base, cream 5in lace as the well lace, and two different pink knit fabrics for the layers. I marked the skirt for the layers every 3 inches and cut the fabric strips 4 inches long. I liked the slightly rough look of the original so I started each layer in a random spot and sewed them on with a zig-zag stitch till the end overlapped the beginning by a few inches. I'm pretty pleased with the final result though its a bit out of my comfort zone.
Oh just FYI I'm also going to enter this in the pattern review pink contest. If your a member there regardless of who you vote for you really should check out the entries. There are some incredibly talented ladies over there.
