Here is a skirt that I made a while ago.  It is made out of a birdie-print table cloth that I found at Goodwill. 



And a couple pics of me wearing it:   (Sorry, no camera man today, so I had to use the mirror.)





And a zoom in of the fabric:



It's pretty simple ... but nice for casual summer wear.  I've been thinking that maybe it could use a trim or some lace around the bottom? 
Please, tell me what you think.

Thanks for looking!

let me tell you, I love this skirt, but since you asked about the trim, what I would do is to shorten it to just above the knees and add a bit of lace trim detail around the hem.

That skirt looks like a million bucks. Or at least, a $350 boutique item.

I love how you used the print. IMHO, it doesn't need a thing --you don 't want to distract from the birdie action.

And trim would make it look more like a $50 boutique item. PLUS make it a strictly summer skirt. You've got enough khaki and red in there to take it through fall.

Inspiration without application is moot.

Simply beautiful and the placement of the birds is inspired.  Grin

I agree, the skirt is great just how it it.  If you add anything it would take away from the great print!  Good job!
