Hey

After weeks and weeks of lurking and cribbing tons of great ideas from all of you, I'd like to present my blue sari fabric skirt. It's still a bit long, but I'm working on it. I tested an elastic type gathering at the hem, but I'm not completely happy with it. Maybe if I do the other side, too, it'll look better. I bought it for something like 2euros per meter from a friendly Indian at the local flea market and had to think of a skirt form that wouldn't destroy the pattern. I still have about half a yard left over, so if anyone has an idea what to do with it, suggestions are welcome.

Beautiful! Perhaps with the left-overs you could make a little camisole top, just using the central pattern. You could use it only on the front, or wrap it partly around the side.

Crochet uses a hook. Pirates have hooks, and they are cool. So crochet is cool because of the hook.

If it's still too long (I believe you're on a chair in the pic?) you could use the remaining fabric to fashion some sort of straps/sleeves and turn the whole thing into a sundress. Maybe create a sash from part of the remaining fabric to define the waist? No matter what you do, I think it's lovely.

If I was ever stranded on a deserted tropical island, within a month I'd have built my own Craft Store and have trained monkeys to work the registers.

I heart personal swaps.

Very pretty skirt!  I'm not a big fan of how the gathering on one side is changing the way the skirt falls, but maybe if you gathered a few places across the bottom it would work?  Or maybe some random spots of gathering throughout the skirt, like this: bridal gown.
