A simple hand made summer skirt

I'm still in my sewing mode.  A couple of days ago, I pulled out some black and white striped fabric from my stash and decided to make a light and airy summer skirt.  If I remember correctly, I got the fabric from "Pound A Metre" on-line shop, maybe three years ago.

I didn't use a pattern for this, just really made a tube, hemmed one edge and then gathered and used elastic in the waist.  It should be a comfy wear in the warm weather.

I have a bit of this fabric left and I hope to be able to create a top with it, but having the stripe horizontally.  I've been to my local fabric shop to get some black cotton fabric, which has been washed and is drying on the line at present, as I will need to use that for the back of the top.
