Cute skirt Dianna. Nice job for one of your first. Hope you found it enjoyable to do because that to me is what is also important.

Oh I love that fabric. After Hurricane Katrina we moved in a little place in Bastrop that had no curtains. I went to their local Walmart and got that fabric because it had the sunshining on it and thought I needed that to cheer us all up. It did and it brightened up my days while I was washing dishes. I didn't know it was Daisy Kingdom fabric.

Cute skirt you made with that fabric. Those little tier skirts the kids are going crazy over lately.
I'm regressing back into my youth, I just have to figure out how I'm going to convience my body to come along with me.

Thanks for all the compliments guys! :D I did have lots of fun with the skirt once I figured out you had to hand gather from each side and couldn't do it all at one time. LMAO I cried many a tear over that! :D I plan on doing lots more for the upcoming spring ;D And making a few a lil shorter so they can throw leggings on under it. ;D

Great job! I tried one tiered skirt and threw it away! I'm up for another try. I'm a newbie, and the first thing I noticed was how straight your seams were! Congrats!
