a black skirt

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" 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.

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!

  1. So cute!! I am working up the courage to make myself a skirt. You did a great job.

  2. This works great! I usually get frustrated when I'm sewing for myself, but this looks like something I could do. The ruffle really finishes it!

  3. I have never been featured before!!! Thanks so much! I will definitely grab a button! Your skirt is way cute! I like it even more with the ruffle :)

  4. Your skirt looks great! Lovely idea to add the ruffle at the bottom!

    Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
    Hope you have a great week!

  5. Looks great. I love the addition of the ruffle!

  6. That looks AWESOME! Nice work!

  7. Wow, I'm impressed! It looks perfect! I admit I've not gotten the hang of making skirts that actually fit me - I even have a proper dressmaker's dummy but I still can't do it. Maybe someday :)
