Spring Skirt

I've been on a skirt kick lately. Mostly because I'm in desperate need of skirts in my wardrobe. Has anyone else noticed how it's hard to buy modest skirts anymore? Since I'm 5"9 it's even harder for me to find a cute skirt thats long enough. This is where sewing comes in handy.

I found this fabric in the discount bin at Joanns a year ago and fell in love with it. Then I came across this free pattern online and knew it would be perfect. Since my fabric was see through I had to add lining. I decided just to serge the lining and the fabric together then make the skirt. Not sure if that is the correct way of doing it, but meh I follow my own rules. I love the fit of this skirt and it doesn't look homemade when it's finished. I got a ton of compliments at church on Sunday. When I told people that I made it they couldn't believe it. I think I have my new favorite skirt!
