I tend to buy fabric I like, then figure out what to do with it, hardly ever the other way around. Partly because I am a bargain shopper and when I find a great price on something I like, I buy it. This skirt is made from 2m of $1.99 fabric (the pink) and the other is an .8m remnant (I think I paid less than $3 for it). Even though they were both in my stash for a few months, I only recently discovered that the colours went so well together and decided I wanted a ruffle skirt. Boy was I lucky. The pink fabric was only 45" wide and because both were pretty sheer, I realized it needed a liner which I made with the pink fabric. As a result, I just squeaked by with the amount of fabric I had, both the patterned and pink. I put an elastic waist band. I love it, but now that it is done, it makes me feel like a square dancer!
