hey. first post/ first non-recon skirt
The local Jo-Anns was going out of buisness and I found this lovely fabric in the upholstery section. no problem. Went about excitedly making a circle-square skirt that was a) 4 inches too big in the waist and b) unlined. so the nasty white 'wrong-side' of the fabric showed. sigh. http://www.phojo.com/PictureFiles/004/72b460c3-e4ef-4b87-af4d-a0c2e0180d66.jpg
so it sat in my closet for a few months until I finally went out and got some black fabric to line it with. I did that, sewed the waist up too small, and now have this! yeah, it didn't really change. It hangs better, I guess with the weight of the lining. http://www.phojo.com/PictureFiles/002/020b0285-1b35-457f-9261-b6c6ee390e29.jpg
Doing twirlys turns it into a tablecloth, as you can see, so I won't be doing that too often...
:] it makes me smilehttp://www.phojo.com/PictureFiles/004/bdc2193b-7ecf-4976-943f-f940344dd32c.jpg
It was actually a pretty sloppy job, it being my first and all, but well. i like it.
