New super easy lacy skirt for early fall
So when I saw this gold rose print lace fabric on my fabric shelf (c/o WholePort, one I used for this little lacy top), and I had enough to make a skirt, I figured I'd try it out for fall! (Last fall I made three skirts a lot like this one--browns and animal print!)
This is a super easy elastic waist gathered skirt, lined with a natural (undyed) cotton, hemmed. I gathered each skirt separately because their circumferences were different, pinned them together, and sewed to a wide elastic band. (I sewed it together a little smaller than my waist measurement, right sides together and then topstitched to secure it.)
I've never seen the perfect off-white/gold elastic, so I just went with white--this is the perfect kind of skirt to wear with a wide belt, anyway, so I figure I'll cover it up when I wear it!
Oh, and it's lace/net so it doesn't unravel, and it was cut in a sort of border print with the flowers from the lace. It's not a perfect border print but I like the sort of zigzag hem.
Okay, now I need the perfect fall outfit to wear with it! I'm thinking motorcycle jacket, pendant necklace, a gold accessory... a la:
