The "No Rules Skirt"

I made this skirt using what I call my "Chop, Chop, Sew, Sew Method". The top part was made using my skirt block, but from there, I just said things like, "Oh, about this long...oh, it really needs a smaller ruffle on bottom." and "Hey, why don't I stick some squares in sideways for handkerchief points...I'll put one here, another here,..." and so on!

It was sort of a rebellion thing as it was the first thing I made after finishing City and Guilds! I needed to do something that wasn't planned to the nth first! I used 1 a metre sale fabric, in case it went wrong, but it turned out great!

I thought it might be too bright, but when I went to the shops to look for a big disk type necklace to go with it, I  found out it was the in colour! So there we are! I am thinking of making some more!
