Sewing Post: Skirt and Bloomers

(Click on the icons for larger views.)

I made the skirt as a practice project; it's the first item of clothing I've ever sewn with a sewing machine (I used to only hand-sew). I simply adore the fabric; I thought that the olive green would be perfect for Classic or Steampunk Lolita.
It was pretty simple to make, and I'm quite happy with it.

I purchased a half-slip from a thrift store yesterday and ripped the seams partway to form the legs. I gathered the eyelet lace and dyed it cream with tea. They start at the waist and end at the knee so they are rather long, but I imagine they'd be wonderfully warm in autumn. :)

I am only a beginner at sewing, and there are so many talented seamstresses in the community, so I'm looking forward to your comments and suggestions!
