Flowery pencil skirt

I had a limited amount of this great vintage fabric and decided a tight fitting pencil skirt would be best. I seriously love this fabric, I wish I could cover a chair with it! The fabric has stretched since I’ve started wearing it and is now slightly too big! Hopefully if I give it a wash it will shrink a little bit.

Material Notes

Thick cotton, it seems like it would be appropriate for seat covers.

    I made a dress out of such a seat-cover cotton. I love the result of yours too!
