This is a skirt that you customize for yourself. You can make the panels out of old t-shirts, old lace or you can buy all the materials if you want. It's fun to be resourceful and recycle. You can get really creative with the panels and do a theme...like Harley Davidson T-shirts. It doesn't have to be hemmed and you can make it as long as you want. The waistband is made from an old t-shirt of your own so you know it fits. This would be a great maternity skirt. This is a great sewing project for learning how to sew because there is little cost and it allows you to be really creative.
I am listing one of these skirts in my Etsy store. http://www.jubilee.etsy.com/
