modern twist to a classic pattern
Valentine's day was approaching and alas, I don't own anything pink. So I whipped up this skirt for the occasion.
I used a non stretch cotton fabric but any kind will do. The stretchier the better the skirt will fit(do not quote me on this though).
Enjoy~
If you had trouble this tutorial on youtube may be of assistance.

    I used another bodycon skirt I owned to trace out my pattern. Your can also do this with a pair of pants (preferably skinny jeans), just make sure the fabric is to your desired length. trace out the skirt and leave an 1 inch seam allowance.
    Cut out the two sides with pinking shears to avoid fraying.

    Once everything is cut out you can go ahead and hem the bottom of your skirt.
    I decreased the seam allowance to half an inch just to make sure that the skirt will fit me snug and not too tight.
    After a few minor alterations you can sew both sides together.

    Once done, flip your skirt inside out and give it a try. If the skirt is too loose on some areas you can pinch that area and pin it down. make sure to mark a line that connects from where you originally sewed the skirt to where you need altering.
    To finish hem the top to complete the skirt.
