After seeing h-low skirts everywhere! I decided to make myself one using some cotton voile, elastic, thread, and my own self drafted pattern.
This was my first time working with voile and I LOVED it!!! This stuff is amazing! My best friend was always trying to get me to use voile, but I thought it would be hard to work with. Boy was I wrong. This stuff sews up just like quilting cotton. Amazing!
