A while ago I made this button up skirt with a scalloped hem. It was the first time using a print-out pattern, but apart from the printing costs it worked well for me. Nette of the Nette Vivante blog made this wonderful pattern: http://nettevivante.blogspot.nl/2011/05/diy-scallop-button-up-skirt-pattern-how.html. The instructions given with the pattern are very useful, and were of great help during the process.
I made some alterations to the original pattern:
I used some rust-colored cheap fabric I found at the local fabric shop. I chose to use thick yarn in a slightly contrasting color, to make it a bit more casual. Then I added buttons which I cut of a hideous vintage dress that was in my wardrobe for ages.
