Scallop Skirt

Added Apr 20, 2012

by ILoveTypewri...

Somewhere, Canada






This skirt didn’t turn out right, but I still had fun sewing it! Next time, I’d make a smaller waistband, add more gathers, and straighten out the button band. Also, I would make sure to read the instructions for the pockets. My version includes some very…interesting…stitching.

Material Notes

Floral bed sheet, Old buttons

      Thank you– I love this fabric too. I wish the bed sheet had been in better condition so I could have salvaged more of it.

    Regardless, it’s a really cute skirt. I like the clever placement of the flowers, I dig it.

      Thank you! (Although, I must give full credit for the fabric placement to chance)
