Port Moresby, Pa...
My first self-drafted skirt from an African print cotton that I picked up cheaply. I liked the print… until I discovered it consisted of a series of one yard squares in a row on the fabric. I tried to cut around the print to make a pattern that would make sense for this skirt, but I don’t know that I was particularly successful.
That said, the skirt is really comfortable and the cotton is cool in the hot weather, so I’m quite happy.
Now I need to learn how to insert a zip! LOL
African print cotton that cost me $10 for 5 yards.
