Fashion Friday! Skirt

I saw this skirt on Pinterest and knew I needed one. The orignal is a Nic + Zoe skirt from Nordstroms, which cost about $130.

I made mine for $16.20! I purchased the fabric and zipper from Joanns. I used my 1-hour skirt technique for the basic skirt and added the pleats as an embelishiment. Total time to construct was less than 2 hours.

To make this, I created a basic pencil skirt. I created 1 1/2″ tubes of the fabric and stiched them to the front of the skirt in an asymetrical design.

The skirt takes an 1/2 yard more fabric than a pencil skirt to create the pleats.

Take my class on a 1-hour skirt at Quilting at the Beach and create your own!
