Marie Skirt Completion!

My bubble skirt is complete!  I do like the final skirt but I think I would make some changes if I did it again.  First, I would probably do a smooth back similar to the Anthropologie skirt that inspired me to participate in this.  Not that I don't like the pleated back, I just think it might be more 'poof' than I'm used to.

Second, I would line it.  I don't normally line the projects I work on unless the information is in the original pattern.  I saw that the sew along was going to have lining, but I figured I'd skip that step.  Looking back, I might actually go back, rip out some seams and add lining.

Not a great photo. Was in a hurry to get to work.

I like the final shape of the skirt more than I thought I would.  It's fun, a little sassy, and I love the plaid fabric.  Overall a cute and easy project.

Even better, one of my co-workers told me I was 'looking awfully Scottish today.'  I think that was the best compliment I've ever received. ;)
