Easy full skirt

Added Dec 17, 2009

Tokyo, Japan






The skirt is basically a pair of rectangles with elastic. It didn’t even need a pattern, but the finished result is quite adorable. I leave the raw edges of the strips shown, and after washing, it frayed a bit and the blue threads are exposed.

I’ve posted a little tutorial in my blog if you want to make it.

Material Notes

Japanese thick cotton in black and brownish swirl patter, Tais cloth from East Timor, Indonesia for the strips.

    Cute skirt! I especially like that you included strips of your mother’s fabrics (and the hand-move)!
