Brand new Craftster here, and already asking questions!
I bought this skirt on eBay about 2 years ago. I fell in love with the fabric immediately and sniped it at midnight for a total cost of less than $15. It is a size 18 woven cotton circle skirt (with a few random ill-sewn sequins scattered about and falling off in many places). It fits fine, but a woven circle skirt is not a great look on a plus size gal with my measurements (size 18-22 hourglass). It adds inches to my already ample backside. I cannot bear to part with the material, so I am looking for some reconstruct ideas that will transform these works of art into a new work of art!
My sewing skills are improving, but I am ideally looking for something that a novice can construct. I have successfully worked with patterns in the past, but it has been many years (I am 32).
