More Hummingbird

I had to make another one. I meant to make this one a little longer, but I made it a little more fitted, so it sits a bit higher on me. This is another Hummingbird skirt by Cake Patterns. I cannot tell you how much I love this pattern. 

Here you can see the length more. This is a shiny denim I found on clearance at Joann. I saw it and decided to channel my inner Sallie Oh because I am still crushing on her metallic mini skirt. I admit I am just a cheap imitation, but someday I will have cool gold fabric too!

Oh yeah, check out my sweet lapped zipper!

It isn't perfect, but for a first try I couldn't be happier with the results. I used Sunni's free Mastering Zippers class on Craftsy to do it. It is a great resource if you have never checked into Craftsy. At least go sign up for the free zipper class!

Oh and what's that in my pocket? Just a little Jungle January tribute! Hot pink leopard just worked perfectly on this one!


  1. Props to you on such a beautifully done zipper and LOVE the skirt!!!

  2. THis skirt is so cute.. Proud you made another one.. Love it..
    I too, got the free zipper class from Craftsy..It is fantastic, isn't it?

  3. There's a wild woman living on the inside just waiting to get out!!!! Cute skirt and great addition of the animal print.

  4. That is one cool skirt!!

  5. Awesome. Those pockets doubly so! :D
