Lined puple highwaisted shirt of cheerfulness.

whipped this up while watching tv, doing 3 loads of laundry, tidying the house, and watching get Smart (the movie, not the show). I was a very busy Sunday.

Disn’t use a pattern, just made a basic waistband from my measurements, a rectangle for the skirt, a slightly smaller one for the lining, topstitched the lining hem in purple thread at the base, pintucked the skirt rectangle, gathered and sewed it all up. easy as!

please excuse the crapcam™ pics.
