How cute!! What a great way to use up your leftover home dec fabric-and the ribon trim and waist are the perfect touch. I really like your shower curtain too.Thanks for the review!

Totally cute skirt. I would have never thought to make a toile skirt but I might now.

Darling skirt! I have a 5 year-old Eddie Bauer toile-look skirt with the waistband finished exactly as you did yours. I always thought it was a creative idea and like it.

I love the waistband finish idea, very clever. I will have to try that next time I make a skirt in that style. Cute skirt!

Really cute, I just love how you used leftover fabric from shower curtains you made!

Like something you would see in ready to wear and think "I could make that." Very special.

Great looking skirt. I loved the "reversed facing" idea.

I love this new version, it looks so delicate and old fashioned-and the red perks it up :o)

Your friend will love it. Great way to use up fabric that doesn't suit you.

I bought a green toile for a skirt ages ago but lost inspiration when it came to deciding exactly what kind of skirt. We may have a winner!

How did you handle the waist treatment with your ribbon at the zipper? Any chance you can post a pic of the zipper? Thanks. Looks great! I may have to get this!
