Description

I was inspired to make this skirt when I saw a picture of Zooey Deschanel wearing a outfit with yellow shorts (2nd photo). I didn’t think I would be able to pull off yellow shorts so a skirt was the next best thing. And I love a full gathered skirt so I made the skirt part 2.5 times the width of the waistband. The gathering took a while but the end result was definately worth the work. I am planning on wearing this on Saturday night to the McClymonts concert.

yellow cotton drill, 12" zipper

      I stitched it on the machine and then gathered it. I am not sure the stitch length I just used the longest stitch my machine does. It is not as complicated as you think. THis skirt took me literally 1.5 hours to make.
