Has this ever happened to you? You’re invited to a party at the last minute. Of course, the inviter intended to call you ahead of time, but they simply forgot. Or perhaps you entirely forgot about the party- you’re a very busy person. . .

Maybe you and your friends just decided to celebrate the arrival of fall or the end of the work week. Either way, you have found yourself in the same situation many of us find ourselves in every now and then, and sometimes more often than we’d like to admit. You have nothing to wear. Well, instead of making a rushed shopping trip on your way home from work, which, you will inevitably regret, find some of that fabric you’ve been stashing and make this Quick, easy, and perfect Party Skirt! It takes less than 2 yards or 1.5 meters, and about the same amount of hours. You will not only feel better about not making a splurge purchase, but you will find yourself immediately grinning and full of the desire to twirl and perhaps even frolic! I made it out of a vintage fabric my friends mother had been holding on to from the 70’s, which she so kindly donated to me, along with 2 trash bags full of other delights. It actually looks a bit like Alice in Wonderland’s skirt, but, what can I say- we’ve all had the new Alice in Workingland Design Call on our minds the past few days. Anyway, to get yourself warmed up for your design contribution, follow the easy instructions found here and let the twirling begin!
