Making a rose skirt, part one

I bought some very pretty material on ebay, so have decided that my second sewing project is going to be a skirt.

Today I made the main skirt bit. Once again some of my hemming is a bit “interesting”, but it looks okay if you don’t look too closely:

Now I just need some elastic for the waist. Oh, and I need to learn how to sew in elastic. I did attempt it with some thin stuff that came with my starter pack, but I think I a) need a thicker piece and b) need to know what the hell I’m doing. I think it’s a trip to John Lewis tomorrow evening for the elastic and if my handy book doesn’t help, I may have to call on my friend Hannah’s expert sewing skills later on this week…
