Description

I love mustard! not yellow, Mustard.

I made this skirt in ‘paper bag style’, which just involves sewing 2 squares together then pleating at the top with a waist band. Easy, but a good skill to have in your repertoire should the need for a skirt suddenly arise

I added a white band at the bottom for some difference and length.

      oh =( maybe you can wear it as little bits like a bag or scarf? so it doesn’t become to dominant?
