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!
