Ta-daaa... first wardrobe piece

Between interfacing my houndstooth jacket (well, not jacket, pattern pieces) and trying to finish my red McCall jacket (I still have to hem the jacket, hem the sleeves, sew the buttons and sew the lining closed, but I really don't feel like it), I've finished my Modern Sewing lace up skirt. It seemed like quite an easy quick project and I wanted a pencil skirt therefore here it is.

Thank you so much, Cherie, Bonnie, Summerset, Tany, Alana and Vicki! I'm really glad you like the skirt. I've had this pattern for a year now and thought about making a skirt all this time...
