Velvet Burnout Skirt in Curtain

Added Nov 29, 2010

Columbus, Ohio, ...






This skirt was made using a polyester velvet curatin that I found for 99 cents. Can’t beat that! I also used a salvaged vintage zipper and a bead I found in my jewelry making supplies.

Cost of this project: 99 cents + a day of work

Can’t beat that!

I drafted the skirt pattern using various pattern pieces I already had. Really all you need is a pencil skirt pattern witha good waistband and I added a zipper all the way down the front and fancied up the zipper pull with a bead.

      That is so nice to hear. My friend and I used to talk about moving to Brooklyn. Maybe someday I’ll end up there. Until then, there’s Etsy. :)
