I bought it for a couple of dollars at an estate sale that I talked about here.
And then I even posted a picture of the fabric in this post. I had plans to make the skirt but was working on a huge upholstery project that took up all my time.
So this weekend I finally got it done...well...er...almost done.
The fabric is a stretchy jersey and is striped. I wanted to somehow sew it so the stripes came together in a v shape in a centered front seam. It took me sooo long to work it out. I ended up just jumping in and trying it and somehow it worked.
Here is how it looks.
Sorry for the poor lighting. It was late.
I say almost finished because I still need to hem the bottom.
Are maxi skirts supposed to skim the floor? What is a good length?
For those interested in photography-
