I used stopthefacade's tutorial for a little black pinafore http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=107286.0 to make this skirt out of thick white cotton (to prevent see-throughness) with a zipper. I didn't put in straps but then used black fabric paint to do a geometric design all along the bottom. I then filled in part of it with fabric paint colors inspired by 60s and 70s pop art. I used Scribble and Polymark fabric paint (it doesn't come out in the wash). I love it! It's a little pooofy but it's cute and fun for spring time.

This ROCKS!  Reminds me a bit of those colleo-neato coloring books we used to get in the 60's.

That is amazing. I can't believe all the work you put into it! I would love having something like this. But I wouldn't want to wear it, its too pretty and I would mess it up! Awesome, awesome, awesome

OMG, this is one of the coolest projects I've seen here. I hit "This rocks!"

The details are incredible! It has kind of a Yellow Submarine meets Dr. Suess feel to it. Fabulous work! I LOVE it!!  Cheesy
