When I saw this fabric I fell in love and had no idea what I was gonna do with it.  So I bought a couple yards (and plan on buying a LOT more cos I do Love it) and made this sweet circle skirt.

The hem is kinda wonky cos I cant iron the fabric (its upholstery fabric and when I attempted to iron it it just turned brown...).  Its got a side zipper that is electric blue to match the blue of the skirt and has an extended tab reaching to the front where its held down with a skull button.

The button and the true picture of the colors...



The full thing



And more of the top to show tab.

Cool fabric!  Love your skirt and have a suggestion.  Try using a pressing cloth and lower temperature to iron the fabric.  I usually dampen my pressing cloth to make sure that the fabric doesn't get too hot.  If I see steam, that is my cue to move the iron.  Hope that helps!
Happy sewing!

I'll try that!  Thank you!  It just looks so bad with a bubbly hem...

And thanks for the compliments guys.  I love it and can't wait to wear it out.
