This is as close as you can get to Bailey's without getting your eye wet.

Clearly I love this cake.
12  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 100 ENTRIES / 100 Panel Skirt (Loaded with pictures) on: July 05, 2014 12:38:42 AM
What do you get when you sew 100 strips of fabric together? A skirt! A skirt that looks nothing like the original sketch, but hey, it's still a skirt!

The two coloured fabrics come from my stash. I'd bought them for something but either decided I no longer liked them or forgot what I bought them for. The red (or orange, depends who you ask) is a former bed sheet I picked up at the thrift store. Score!

Proof there's 100 strips you say? Would I lie to you?

If you squint, there's a paper clip every 10 strips along the top. Partly as proof, and partly so I didn't sew it closed with 98 strips.

My original plan was simply a gored skirt with 100 gores instead of my usual 6 or 8, but I was worried about extra bulk around my waist (Plenty of natural extra bulk there already) so instead I popped a waistband on it so I wouldn't have to fold the strips over.

The waistband and the bottom band are both doubled fabric, partly to match the bulk of the skirt and partly because that way I could just enclose all the raw edges in fabric without needing to fold a hem.

Since I don't have a serger, I cut the strips for French seams, then decided I didn't make them wide enough for that, so I sewed them all plain first time around. This made for a skirt big enough to hold a circus under, so I unpicked it all and re did it French instead.

That's a bit thready from the unpicking, but you get the idea.

Best of all? It actually fits! For a while there I wasn't sure it would.

What a cool idea! I've crocheted with plastic bags before and sworn never again - didn't even think of weaving them!
Is this slippery on the floor at all or does it stay put?

What a clever thought! She's lovely (I'm quite jealous of your even stitches too, my amis tend to go a bit lop sided lol)

This is glorious, I love paper cranes and I just love that you put them out there.
Can you imagine how fun it would be to be out for a walk and finding a tree filled with paper cranes? I'm inspired.

Started mine over today. Fear of deadlines is for WIMPS (and smart people, what did I do that for??)

My ideas have been boiled down to one, and I am ready to go.
I'd like to thank my friends for such suggestions as "100 $1 coins! Put them in a box and mail them to me!".
