Flower Power! Retro High-Waisted Skirt

A while back, I found the brightest, cutest vintage fabric at a yard sale. It is a little more stiff than the cotton I usually work with, so I thought it would be perfect for making the high-waisted, retro style skirt I’ve seen various patterns for. I didn’t have a patterm, though, so I winged it. I took a pencil skirt that fits me pretty well and traced it onto my fabric. I made a separate wide waistband and sewed it to the skirt while adding matching lime green piping in between. I’m glad to finally be able to wear this cute print rather than just admire it as part of my fabric stash!
