my mom gave me a gorgeous vintage curtain
and i knew it would make a fantastic little skirt.

i used a simple pencil skirt pattern
that i had drafted in school
and added a big bow to the front.
because who doesn’t love a big bow!?

    This is so pretty! I have a very similar pair of curtains in my fabric stash that I have been wondering for the longest time what to make with. You have definitely inspired me here! Great fit too. :)

    Why is this skirt so freakin sexy??? It really is. Even more so than the mini & the tulip skirts.Maybe it’s the fit. Nicely done.
