2 things inspired me to make this skirt.
The first was I had the yellow top I had purchased awhile ago and I wanted a skirt to go with it that wasn't black. And I had a new necklace that I hadn't worn yet either.
The second inspirations was Summerset's refashioned plaid skirt. It reminded me that I have a Burda pattern that I had made before (so no tracing, fitting, etc) that had a similar look. And I had the perfect fabric - grey check with a gold tread.
The fabric is a cheapy from Spotlight off their $2 table. The lining is a viscose. I added lace to make it pretty.
I did my usual of eliminating the waistband and the facings. I have a set on Flickr that goes through these steps and also has photos of my original skirt.
Tomorrow I will get a photo of me wearing it.
