Quick and easy skirt

A few months ago I won a gift certificate for Sew Mama Sew -- I was like a kid in a candy shop! I was on the lookout for super girly fabrics and fell in love with this one {It's Anna Griffin - Isabelle}:
I only purchased 1 1/2 yards of it and have held onto it -- waiting for the perfect project to pop in my mind. Last week I decided to make a skirt out of it -- super easy. I didn't take pictures of the process, but I just found this great tutorial that gives a step-by-step. This project would be great for beginner {and experienced} sewers alike.
You basically start with a rectangle of fabric {1.5ish X your waist measurement}, sew a casing for the elastic, sew a hem for the bottom, then put in the elastic {I used 1in. elastic I got on the cheap at Tuesday Morning}. You could finish this project in 30 mins! I did decide to put pockets in my skirt and used leftover fabric from my last goodwill refashion. Here's a quick how-to for pockets if you're interested.

I scored the super cute tank at Ann Taylor Loft for $5. They have great t's and tanks right now!
Haha...can you tell I live in an apartment complex and am running out of place to take pictures?? Perhaps our upcoming move will provide more photo op scenery. I'm linking this project to:
