This was made from another simple pattern from MCCalls. Who can't use a black skirt? Especially with ruffles... this is McCalls 3830 and its a "quick and easy" pattern...it really is, just 3 pieces and sew in the zipper in the back. And I could not decide what to do with the bottom...i didn't want it to just be a plain straight skirt. Then I came across this blog ! She even dyed it this color herself! And it's made out of a t-shirt. http://jacksonshappenins.blogspot.com/2011/06/flirty-skirt-dyed.html So...I added ruffles to the bottom, I think it's a nice touch. And here it is...ready to wear! I will be sharing with these blogs...check them out for more inspiration!
