I just finished this totally cool skirt. I am simply in love with it --- in case you can not tell from prior statement. It is made from vintage and retro fabric cut into 8 inch squares. There are 4 tiers of squares with each tier widening the spin until the bottom tier has a spin of 206 inches.


Take a look....

It's beautiful Smiley I think when I'm done with all the clothing I'm making my kids (YA RIGHT? LOL) I want to make a skirt like this for me. You've done a great job and I love your fabric choices.
