animation friday - I made a skirt!

It turned out I did get to make a skirt yesterday after all. Not out of sheets - they were needed for other pursuits - but from a top that had been travelling between my sisters, trying to find a body it fitted (it didn't). It got rescued from the op shop bag and, with just a bit of cutting, and a few minutes of sewing (and a few more minutes of unpicking - first to remove the zip, then to fix my first attempt at the casing), it became a skirt - hooray!

Love that you did get to make a skirt yesterday and that it was from a non fitting anyone top. How fun!

Ooh thats a bit cute, the fabric is lovely and it makes a very pretty skirt for Miss Pencils & Pins.

BTW I think that your bright green sheet from your previous post would have to be one of the best I've seen.
