I still have extra fabric from that estate sale I raided over a year ago, and I have wanted to make a circle skirt. Since I hate making toiles, I though I would test my pattern out on this fabric, and if it happened to turn out nice, I would spiff it up. The pattern’s initial draft worked well enough that I went and got some lace to put around the hem, which is 4 3/4 yards. Good thing I had a 50% off coupon for the lace. It was so hard to sew the lace on with that snowflake-like pattern. I would sew three stitches, lift and turn the skirt, sew three stitches, and so on for nearly 5 yards! I’m super happy with it! And, unlike all of my other clothes, there’s no black on it. Unfortunately, it doesn’t really go with any tops I currently own, so my next step is to make a nice top to go with it.
