Rapture Skirt

Home Ec in Iowa City offered a skirt making class last week and I made this skirt. It's from an Anna Maria pattern using some fabric I found at Home Ec. I've never made clothes before except for some repurposing, so this was intimidating (pockets, pleats, and a hidden zipper!). My finished product was a size too big, so my mom took it in for me. Then she hemmed it. I had wanted to say I made the whole thing myself, but by the end of two long evening classes just to end up swimming in my perfect yet too-big skirt, I was burnt out. Mom to the rescue!

The lining is muslin. Any blue marks you see are from fabric pen, which will wash off.
