Without a pattern, a made this pencil skirt, orange with lace overlay. It actually turned out really well and no one can tell I made it until I point out all the little details that only I notice (except when my friend looked closely at it on a hanger, and she already knew that I made it). It was also one of my first successful invisible zipper experiences! The darts kind of stick out in the picture, but in reality you barely notice them! You can see my DIY on my blog here: http://tartarsandteacups.wordpress.com/2012/04/07/diy-patternless-lace-pencil-skirt/
