Sewing Stuff - Blues Skirt Part 2

So because Monday was a holiday I actually had spare time to sit down and start my sewing project, something that I've been looking forward to ever since I made the first post about it. I put some fun swing music on and decided to get started. So here we go, step by step the construction of The Blues Skirt.

Step 1: I laid out my fabric and folded it over, wanting to cheat a little and use the fold part as the bottom section so that I wouldn't have to hem it. I figured it would look cleaner this way and would probably lay straighter.
