I finshed it! January 12 in 12 challenge

I finally finished my skirt!





I used this pattern to try and highlight the fabric.  I also lined it, which is not shown on the pattern.  I just used a thin gauze and made a 2nd skirt, joining it at the waist and the ends. 

There is a lot of fabric in here, and had to re-wind my bobbin a few times.  Not to mention that my sewing machine decided not to work properly just as I needed to top stitch the waist!  So its off the the machine Dr this week!

Ill try and get some action shots during the week!

I just realised that I have a large butterfly in both the front and the back.
