I based this skirt on Gertie's (from Gertie's New Blog For Better Sewing) full gathered skirt. I made it a bit shorter than it was supposed to be, used fusible interfacing and failed to slip stitch the waistband, since I can't (or won't) sew by hand. No one looks at the inside of my skirt anyway, right (except for my aunt, who investigates my sewing projects inside and out)? It's made out of a simple cotton and maybe it's not all that clear from the pictures, but the fabric has small golden spots on it. A friend of mine saw me in this skirt and immediately exclaimed "Alice in Wonderland!". Not what I was going for, but I'll take it anyway.
Fabric: under 8EUR
Fusible interfacing: 0,72EUR
Invisible zipper: 3,30EUR
Thread: 3,10EUR (with still plenty left!)
TOTAL COSTS: approx. 15,10EUR
The pattern is made up out of two rectangles, each needs to be cut out twice (I used a cotton fabric). The dimensions for the waistband are 6 cm on 72 cm (I think I'm going to add one cm next time, though). The rectangle for the skirt body is 57 on 105. I think I'm going for a little less gathers on the next skirt (gorgeous floral fabric on its way!).
The photographs are terrible, I know. I guess that is either b/c
a) I made my little brother my photographer
b) We photographed inside with no natural light at all since it was already dark outside
c) I'm just a terrible model (I think my awkward smile already gives away I'm not used to this)
