Another crazy short skirt for you here.. For those of you that saw my Harry Potter mini (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=240660.msg2650240#msg2650240) I'm sorry to report that the cotton was not such a great bargin after all, and all the colours faded Cry I'd even put it on a low wash for safety! Oh well..

This one is made out of the bottom half of a pair of jeans my housemate chopped into shorts. The spotty fabric is bought (sorry hard-core reconstructors!!), and incase you can't tell, it is so short, even my boyfriend (nautorious for trying to get me out in public with my knickers almost showing Roll Eyes ) said "I think you should.. er, wear tights with that one" !!! Cheesy

Mission accomplished! Haha.

Excuse the bad action shot, it was 1 am when I finished, and I just *had* to get pictures right away!





Yes, my zipper sucks. I don't have a zipper foot Embarrassed

That is a cute idea. I think it would look ok with leggings but I could never wear that outside on its own  Shocked
