Another new easy to make skirt!

I first saw this skirt over on Sewing in no mans land and fell in love. I love how flattering high waisted skirts can be! She also has the tutorial for a kids version of this skirt, so if you've got a little lady in your life you can whip one up for her too!

Love love love! Now my version has one big difference though... mine is a skirt and a belt, and hers is a one piece skirt. Here's why I went off track with this one... you see my waist is tiny... and my hips/thighs... are MUCH much larger... so to make the top wide enough to fit my bum through would have left a LOT of extra material open in the back... I needed elastic, so I made a simple skirt with an elastic waist and then followed the belt part but sewed the bottom part closed. Easy cheesy. Either way you make it though this sews up in a few hours and is so freaking cute everyone will flip for it!

Seriously how adorable is this thing!!??

I have the same issue, tiny waist, big-ish butt and thighs. I'm not crafty enough to make my own skirts though! :)

Isn't finding clothing that fits the worst?? Lucky "Easy Rider" Jeans
(that's the only fit from Lucky that works though) fit me perfect!... but
they are $$$$ but worth it to have jeans that actually fit me without a
