A+ Skirts earn an A+ for simplicity

You may remember a couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to win a pattern for an A+ Skirt from Make it Perfect.  Well today I finally made the skirt, and here it is:

I couldn't believe how easy it was to make.  I've never ever done any dressmaking before, and I made it without having to unpick a single stitch.  The instructions are so clear, so if you're thinking of making a skirt, I can thoroughly recommend this pattern.

Here is another view of the skirt - this time with me wearing it (although I've cut off my head as it was a terrible photo of me!)
I'm so excited I want to make more of them, so tomorrow I'm off to the fabric shop for more fabric, and soon I'll have a whole wardrobe of fantastic skirts.  I think perhaps a funky patterned corduroy next, with a pair of chunky knitted tights underneath - makes me cosy and warm just thinking about it.
