This is for my sister for Christmas.  I showed it to my best friend, but she isn't into handcrafted things - she likes designer stuff.  So I need some honest thoughts from pros, although I think it's rather pretty for an old pillowcase. lol  Wink   I put beads on the ends of the drawstrings, and had intended to bead the hem, but couldn't find enough turquoise beads.  Oops.  I'm still not sure about the applique, but... *shrug*




Thank you for looking! Smiley

The aplique is really pretty. What did you make it with? Your friend is silly, it looks awesome to me. Its one of a kind, unique, and you designed it, thats as good as designer as far as I am concerned.

Very pretty!  I really like the applique.  I would be really excited if my sister gave that skirt to me.

I think it's pretty too (especially with the appliqu). 

If I may ask, is the drawstring functional, and what is it made from?  The only concern I might have about the skirt is if the string is strong enough (it's not fun to be wearing a garment when the drawstring breaks).

Yes, the applique is beautiful beautiful!  What a great idea... I guess I had never thought of using a pillow case.  I'd be stoked to get this for Christmas!  Super-crafty!!   Grin

Thanks so much, everyone!

Muria, the drawstring is functional.  It's either double- or triple-folded and sewn.  I didn't think about it breaking...yikes.  Now I might reinforce it! lol

I wouldn't have thought of it either, if I hadn't known someone whose drawstring broke at Cedar Point (at the company picnic, no less)!  I think they spent a bunch of time in the bathroom trying to rethread what was left back through the  waistband (because she pulled it out when she tried to tighten it and it snapped).   It should be ok, as I've only seen it happen once.

Oh, goodness!  That would be horrible!  Of course, at Cedar Point, I guess you could always buy a C.P. lanyard and use that...lol  My sister is a stick, so I can totally see this falling right off should the string break. lol
