My Patchwork Skirt

i was in a hurry last month making this to wear to the baby shower.i didn't like the picture of me wearing it so i just can't show it to you. i thought it looked very nice and it felt good on. i only wish i had the time to make it fit correctly. sized for tweens and teens. i thought i would just make the elastic looser. good plan but. i cut the dropwaist band wider. which made me cut the elastic longer. which made it too big. and since i zig-zag the elastic on instead of using a casing. that usually takes a few hours to rip-apart. so i did not fix. i cut the black strips narrower. partly design and partly not needing all that fabric. and it was smaller by 10 in. but because i lined it and that made it heavy it just puffed out. oh and the hembands are too wide. i would like to do this one over in the same fabrics. Kaffe. Authentic. Joel Dewberry. Riley Blake Wheels. Rawhide. Amy Butler. they really would make a nice quilt. hmmm. it's a new pattern. Pink Fig Patterns Hippy Chick Stripwork Skirt. i got it here. but you can also find it here.
