Floral Pencil Skirt

Hey! Guess what? I finally finished something. I finished this skirt last night. I know I say this all the time, but whenever I think a project will be really easy, it ends up being difficult. I have made plenty of dresses, but not that many skirts. This was the first time I made a kick pleat and put in a regular zipper. I have always sewn invisible zippers. I had to find instructions online because the pattern didn't explain the zipper steps well enough.

I think it turned out pretty well! It's a little bit big on me and once something is made I'm terrible at alterations. Believe me, I tried.  I used  New Look 6003 pattern. In the future I would like to line the skirt and add pockets.

This is how I'm wearing it today.
