I'm all about skirts, you know. Besides being way more comfortable than jeans, skirts are fun to twirl, and make me feel more "at home" with myself. This is who I am. I love to dress up, love to try new things, and love to alter or create anything I can get my hands on.
I made the last skirt from upholstery fabric. Yes, indeed, I did.
Tonight I was looking for a plain skirt to alter. It seems that I don't actually own a plain jane skirt, but there was a pillowcase folded on the couch. The lowly white pillowcase needed a makeover.
And so the fun begins...
Cut up strips of anything you want to use. I thought I'd use another pillow case, but then saw this lace curtain and gauzy yellow fabric. Gather material and sew on. I didn't bother to hem or measure. This is a fun, easy skirt...meant to have a slightly messy, uneven look just-for-the-heck-of-it. Easy, fast. Sewing while watching movies is double the pleasure. I get relaxing time with the Man, while also getting my Craft On.
I do need to at least clip the threads off!! And possibly wear a shirt that semi-matches, instead of my tankini.
So many skirt ideas, so little time.
