More Skirts

Here are two more skirts from last summer.  This was my first attempt at making a pleated skirt and it was a learning experience.  I used a light weight denim with a bright orange floral fabric inside the contrasting pleats to make them pop.

The colors in the second skirt remind me of the outfits my mom dressed me in when I was a preschooler in the the 1970's!  The main fabric came from a thrifted vintage pillowcase and the butterfly applique was another thrifted fabric.  This was my first time adding pockets to a skirt.
