Description

Here I copied the pattern of a skirt that I love for its great cut. Maybe I should’ve taken a fabric that’s a little less extreme. Anyway, if I just concentrate on the cut very hard I’m really happy with the result. Maybe I’ll try it once again with a different fabric though.

    I think it’s a cute skirt and the fabric is great. :) It would help if you had matched your plaid at the seams (there’s lots of info online to help you with that, try http://www.craftandfabriclinks.com/TIPS/match_plaids.html for starters). It helps the pattern to look unified and not so fragmented, which lessens the visual busyness.

    I actually really like the effect of the colors and the lines. This is just amazing. What pattern did you use?

    Beautiful skirt! I wouldn’t worry too much about the fabric- it’s bright and cheery, unique! I’d wear it proudly!
