No Pattern Knit Skirt

Yesterday I had plans. At the last minute those plans changed. So, I decided I would make myself a new skirt. Without a pattern. Just start cutting and sewing and figure it out as I went. Here's the result:

It's a simple straight skirt made from some vintage jersey fabric. LOVE the print! I made a high waistband out of the fabric, also. I need to take it in just a bit, though, so I did not photograph it.

Here's the side profile:

Slightly closer shot. Isn't that print just AWESOME?!

All together it probably took me about an hour and a half to make it. Even including my time fixing my mistakes along the way. I am so pleased with this. And my wardrobe just got much prettier!

Fabric: Late 1960s or Early 1970s Synthetic Jersey
