the panda sews: an a-line skirt


the final installment of my sewing class was held today. i went in with 1 1/4 yards of fabric and a zipper, and five hours later, i left with a skirt.  it boggles my mind that i was able to make something i could actually wear.  dare i say, it's better quality than the clothes at old navy (though that's probably not saying very much).  we followed the amy butler barcelona a-line skirt pattern, and i chose a joel dewberry fabric called "floral fields" for my main fabric. i made a trim at the bottom, since i didn't really want to hem the bottom up (i didn't want the finished skirt to be any shorter). yippppeeee!  i definitely plan on making another skirt or two in the near future...
don't my knee caps look funny?

I made this exact skirt (different fabric) @ my sewing class last week! I am dying to try to do it again to make a whole summer wardrobe for myself!

I have no doubt that it's higher quality than Old Navy. Looks awesome, congrats Master Seamstress!
