Making the Birthday Skirt

I am finally posting some of the pictures of the process of making my skirt that I wore for my birthday. I'll just give you a bit of a run down first though- it was made out of a lovely oyster-white silk with an off white chiffon over the top. As you will see when I post up the final picture, it's just a fairly simple gathered skirt with a zip up the side.

I don't know if I mentioned it in my earlier posts, but the skirt was originally intended to be a bustier dress, but the pattern didn't really work out too well, so it became a skirt instead.

And there you have it, the makings of my beautiful new skirt!
