The Happy Skirt

I made this skirt in Frebruary before we went to Mexico. I liked the happy, festive colours.

I used the skirt of a dress pattern (I'm not even sure which one) and attached a waistband. My measurements were simple; cut a length of fabric, wraps it around my waist, mark the ends, and gather to fit. It was a a little too big but I wore it anyway.
When I went to try it on a few weeks ago, it seemed to be even bigger so I pulled off the waistband, pulled the gathers tighter, and resewed the band. And viola!
It is a wonderfully fun summer skirt.
