when I showed my husband this fabric(curtain) from a thrift store, he immediately said it was very old lady like, and how much I like stuff that are in old lady style.
okay, I admit it, yes I do! I love old lady things!!

anyhow, the skirt turned out pretty, I think.
and, this pattern will also be cute as a bottom part of dress as I’ve seen some of Burdastyle members have tried.

    It turned out gorgeous and I don’t think it’s old lady at all. My husband says the same thing about my fabric choices. It’s very chic and so springy! Love the pleats.

    I really love that fabric, it looks great! I think as long as you sew something youthful and modern, it won’t look “old-lady” :)
