MiaMoo Designs Apron Skirt

I ordered this fabric with an apron skirt in mind, and finally made it yesterday.  You can't tell in the picture because her shirt is covering it, but the waistband is made with the green polka dot fabric by Amy Butler. Its a pretty thick waistband and I added a zipper in the back.  I need to make a few more skirts with zippers before I decide whether or not I'd like to put them in my boutique to sell.  I didn't use a pattern for this skirt.  I just used her waist measurements and measured out long I wanted it and how big I wanted the apron.  I can make the skirts pretty quickly, but I'm still new with the zippers.  I LOVE the way it turned out.  I hope to find a cream long sleeve top to go with it so I can applique the trees on the front.  Whenever I go to Target or Walmart I can never seem to find long sleeve shirts.  Maybe I should try Old Navy.   I also would like to make her a headband to match :)  I'll post pics if I ever get around to it!

Pretty skirt! I love it and I wonder why I've never sewn any apron skirt so far. Now that I saw yours I must make one! And yours actually has zipper? Awesome Katie!
