Smooth Sailing Skirt
I've done a bad thing...I took pictures before I actually finished the garment! I rarely do that, but I know this week's going to be crazy and I won't get a chance to take pictures for awhile. And it just needs to be hemmed. Okay, maybe I was also a little excited about posting.
As soon as I rescued this fabric from the sale shelf at JoAnn, I knew it had to be a skirt. I made a simple rectangle shape and gathered it at the top with elastic. It's also lined since I knew the fabric would be see-through, and it has pockets.
I feel like it might be a little too poofy, but a good pressing might help. I did make a pretty huge rectangle...it was the length of the fabric, which was 45". Maybe I'll take a little off the sides next time!
Anyway, it's great for twirling around in and I can't wait to wear it when it warms up outside. Oh and aren't those shoes cute? I got them for $1.50 at Goodwill and they're hardly worn. I love when that happens!
Have you started working on any spring projects yet? I'm rescuing a Goodwill blouse with some new buttons and have another top in the queue. Happy Sunday!
