haha, feels awkward being the first one to post here, but someone has to do it!
I FINALLY finished my skirt today. It's not perfect, but considering it's only the second thing I've ever sewn, I think it came out fairly well. It took me like 2 months, but I learned sooooo much, both in learning to work with the fabrics (fraying SUCKS), putting in zippers, and patterning, that I'm hopeful that the rest of the work will go quicker.
I'm doing the Merciless Gladiator's Regalia set (mage arena season 2): http://www.wowhead.com/itemset=710
Here's the skirt:
It looks a little funky on the dummy because my dummy doesn't quite match the shape of my rather large badonkadonk. The skirt looks a little bare because I've decided to attach the hanging thingies (for lack of a better term) onto the bodice portion, as opposed to hanging it off the skirt.
