get yer craft on

School has finished (on Tuesday) and I've been sitting at home, on the computer, being lazy, etc. etc. But... yesterday I was browsing through Craftster.org and I found some really awesome high waisted skirts/pinafores. So I decided to make a pinafore (looks like a high waisted skirt with straps). I found a tutorial and began sewing. It is the first article of clothing I have ever sewed in my entire life... so I'm quite pleased with it. Even though I almost tore it into zillions of pieces after having to move the zip about 9,067,895 times. Unpick, pin, sew, unpick, pin, sew...
Here it is:
Tell me whatcha think =]

(Skirt; homemade, $0. Singlet; Supre, $13. Tights; Farmers, $8. Cardi; Valleygirl, $20.)

*EDIT* I forgot to say that I didn't end up making the pinafore with straps, I just left it as a skirt as the straps were fiddly to sew and I was satisfied with it as a skirt.
