I took the pattern from a New Look skirt from a charity shop. As lovely as it was, it was starting to get threadbare, so I took it apart and reincarnated it with some lovely eBay fabric!
I did learn one thing from this: never, ever make skirts out of T-shirt fabric. Even taking into account the stretch, I stil have to safety pin it to be sure it’ll stay on.
T-shirt material. It’s a lovely pattern, but don’t use it to make a skirt. Use something less stretchy.
