Metropolitan Retro Skirt

Brooklyn, New Yo...






This is the first pattern I drafted, given its a circle skirt, but you got to start somewhere! I made it about a year and a half ago. The fabric is my mother’s vintage bed sheets from the 70s. It freaked my sister out a little haha. More pictures of it on my blog:
