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!
