I have officially committed and am going to try for the first time to sew my own clothing! I love this skirt and can't wait to try it )

I love the color and shape of this skirt. Like the description says, it would be perfect to wear on a spring day. Plus, the elastic waist will be nice and comfortable.

I love the idea of this Spring Gathered Skirt! I was just looking for something yesterday in the shops to wear in this nice spring weather, and this would be perfect. I am new to sewing and I think I can do this by following your tutorial. I even have the material that would look great made up like this.

I really love how simple this skirt is, but it looks expensive as well. I wonder if you could cover the elastic waistband with satin ribbon to dress up the skirt a little or if that would be too much trouble.
