Very full, high waisted, circular black skirt

I sold my coffee table and one of the bookshelves this week. Knowing that Andy and I have to get rid of all our stuff in less than a month, I posted them on craigslist. It is kind of sad to see that the apartment becoming emptied out slowly, and feeling like a someone else's place already.

As I mentioned in my yesterday's post, I wanted to make a very full circular high waist skirt. I want to call this a donuts skirt because it is made out of big circle and a hall in the middle. I did not use pattern for this. I gather the edge of the inner circle with an elastic thread, and put a folded band to make the skirt high waisted. The back waist part has a elastic. Then I added this black zipper (not an invisible one) to add some accent to a simple black skirt.

Next time, I want to make this in purple gingham print!

Top: H&M
Skirt: Handmade by me
Sandals: Bandolino

I'm impressed that you made that skirt by yourself! Was it hard to figure out the zipper in the front?

That skirt is lush, if it was in topshop, it would have sold out! I wish I could make things like that! x

thank you all for your comments!

hi darrah, about the zipper, it is actually pretty easy. i find invisible zipper is harder to install than this exposed zipper:)

hi sholpana, the zipper flower looks cool! i would love to see your zipper flower creation!

Stilleto, yes, most of the clothes on my blog are handmade by me!

lunate, good luck on moving this wkd! i hope you will like your new place a lot:)
