DIY Floral Print Skirt

I saw a floral print skirt on Hollister's website a little while back and I thought it was really cute. The only problem is that the skirt was sooo SHORT! So I decided to make one similar to it but more modest and here is the tutorial! 

This is the pattern I Used (one of my favorite skirt patterns)

The part circled in blue is the only part I used of the pattern. The bubble thing at the bottom is atrocious so I "x"ed it out. The green waist band, I cut out on my own. 

Cut your pieces out
this is the front, A big trapizoid

This is the two back pieces, they are the same as the front piece but its split up the middle and has an extra a seam allowance for the zipper

The waist band is my waist plus 3 inches and the width is 3 inches

Sew the 3 skirt pieces together but don't sew the two back pieces to each other yet

For the waist band iron it in half and then iron the side a centimeter up 

Attach it to the top of the skirt

Sew a straight stitch to secure the waist band on

Now you sew the two back sides together

iron the seam open and install a zipper

Then just hem the bottom and you are done!

Here is the video tutorial
