Last week I attended a local fair and sold this skirt.
I bought the fabric form a very well know department store, with the intention of making a skirt for myself, but I hate waste, so decided to make the skirt to fit the fabric, which meant it was too big for me. My daughter was very disappointed, as she thought I should have kept it for me. 
I had decided to take it apart and remake it to fit me, but hey ho, it sold at the fair. I must admit it looked great on the customer, unfortunately this fabric is no longer available, but I am desperately trying to find something similar.  

This week I received a request from Etsy, the buyer wanted this skirt custom made for her, she wanted a different size and colour
Full Circle Checked  Skirt -plus size
 This is the completed skirt, it is made in a blue check fabric which is cut on the bias, allowing it to fall with gently folds around the legs.

I am really pleased with how it has turned out. I would love to hear what you think
If you would like a custom made skirt, visit my shop on Etsy or Artfire and email me to discuss your order

I think the flower print is super! It has a great retro. feel...very 1970's (-;

You are indeed the talented one, your work is beautiful!!:o) I can imagine just how pleased your customer was with her new skirt!

I hope you find a fabric close to the flower print you loved, it is adorable!

Happy weekend to you!

The checked skirt is so pretty, it'd look amazing with a 50s style net underskirt and haltertop, with some killer heels!
