My first made by me skirt

I must admit I'm feeling a bit bored by my clothing options at the moment. Breastfeeding means that my frock options are fewer then usual, so I figured I could use some more skirts in my wardrobe. I rarely wear skirts normally, as I carry some rolls on my belly so I feel more comfortable in frocks. I also tend to feel 'dressed down' in skirts. I plucked up the courage to sew my very first skirt, without a pattern and all. I roughly copied another A-line skirt that fits me well, and cut out this vintage fabric from my stash and sewed it up. Of course it required some ric-rac as a finishing touch. I hope to make some more simple skirts when I have the time and energy, although I'm yet to attempt adding a zip.
