For this skirt, I picked this bold and loud printed fabric, from 
the quilting section of my local Joann's. Uh yeah!

I often times don't even go towards that section, unless I'm looking for broadcloth to line
 with, a ruler, some chalk or some safety pins.
But sis, it's some great prints in this section, it aint just for quilting, No!

When I first saw this pattern, I thought I saw that cover pic fabric in the quilting section, lol. But, I also loved the skirt itself. I love, love the wide band, it actually wraps around the waist.
I cant tie a pretty bow to save my life!!!!!  Ugggh, anyway!

I always wanted to try this framing effect, kinda like framing art in a picture or
 blocking, idk. I'm luvin that it has pockets which is always a plus for me. 
 Can I twirl in it?  Check, lol.

This skirt also came with a cute 1-tier petticoat pattern. I followed the pattern and only added 1 row of ruffling for the petticoat, but i think doubling it would look even fuller!

I didnt make the top, but it's cute too! Just paired it with a simple red T-shirt.
I just found a mustard T-shirt that looks great with this too.
Sidenote: I love JC Penny's T-shirts they are so soft and haven't faded!
