Sergered Skirt

I recently finished this skirt for Lena, my daughter. I have made it up ages ago, but needed to sit down and do the hand sewing for the waistband. The two things that I love about this skirt are that I made the whole thing with my serger and that I didn't use a pattern at all. I was really free-form sewing. Since the skirt is so full the only measuring that I had to do was to make sure that the waistband fit.

To make the hem of the skirt I simply rolled the skirt fabric into a tube and stuck it inside the red hem fabric. It make a lovely hem that is finished on both sides. I took a bit of doing to get all that rolled up fabric out after sewing, but I love the results.
