i'd be really interested, but december would be the best time for me, as i'm at school in the middle of nowhere unitl then, and supplies are crazily limited.

and i'd definately say color or specific themes as opposed to holiday themes. then, they could stay out longer.  Grin

ok, the tutorial is going to be really awful because i was basically making it up as i was panicking and eating dinner.

1. measure your waist, and cut a 4-inch wide strip for the waistband. [leave room for seams!!!]

2. fold the material in half, and in half again.

3. take your waist measurement, and divide it by 4.

4. measure  and cut out that distance from the one corner where all the folds are [so if you cut out a quarter of a circle from that corner, when you unfold the material, there will be a waist-sized hole in the middle of it.]

5. from that cut, measure however long you want the skirt to be, and cut in the same circular shape. [mine was 12 inches, i think]

6. sew the waistband to the skirt piece.

TIME OUT
here's where my skirt got horribly messed up. as an english major, i don't believe in math, therefore my measurements were awfully wrong and the actual skirt part was two times what it should have been. so what i did, was i cut the skirt so it turned into one long strip. then i sewed the waistband onto the skirt piece, and closed that part up [sewed the waistband to itself, leaving the rest of the skirt hanging loose]. when i put the skirt on, i wrapped the excess material around, kind of kilt-like, i guess, and pinned it with two safety pins at the top. then, i flipped the waistband down over the pins, so no one could tell they were there. i didnt have time to hem any of it, but i'm sure that if you have a sewing machine and time, yours will come out much, MUCH better than mine did.

have fun!! and i'm glad you guys enjoyed my skankiness. hahaha

So the other night I was headed to a theme party, but I am also fashionably challenged, so I had nothing to wear to it. The theme was professors and schoolgirls. Considering I go to school in the middle of nowhere, our shopping options were very limited. I went to the cheap clothing store and found nothing, but my roommate found some plaid material for $3 a yard. I got two yards, and in 20 minutes, whipped out a skirt and bows for my hair. [also, i had no sewing machine, so the whole thing was made by hand!!] It's really basic and really slapdash, but here it is.




the other girl in the picture is my roommate, who went as a professor.

so, yes, I realize what we look like. But I am pretty impressed by my last-minute crank out a skirt abilities.
