Heather Baily Print Skirt

I got a bunch of really cheap patterns awhile back and some fabulous Heather Bailey fabric, so I thought I'd try my hand at making myself a quick skirt.
I love this outfit. I got a whole new outfit for very little. I made the skirt, I already owned the shirt, shoes, and purse.  I got the necklace for FREE at Kohl's (thank you $10 off $10 coupons!).  And, as a superfluous splurge, I bought the blue flower ring at Target for a few dollars. 

I actually altered the skirt from what the pattern dictated.  It wanted the front to be a seam, and I didn't think it looked very good.  Plus, I like there to be a band at the waist (the better to hold my tummy in... :)  ) and this one didn't have one.  So, I changed where the zipper went so the front part of the skirt didn't have a seam and added a 3 inch wide waistband at the top. 

I'm loving my new skirt!
