I took the Twirl Skirt descriptions and modified them to make use of some scraps of heavy cord and houndstooth I had left over from other craft projects. Because the material was much heavier, I had to improvise a waistband that would hold up to the heavier drape, but given I haven’t sewn in about two years, I’m pleasantly surprised with the outcome
leftover houndstooth (black/grey) and cord (rose red with pattern) of unknown provenience
