I bought this tablecloth at the thrift store to make a circle skirt with, but then yesterday I was at the store and I saw these really cute wrap skirts which had plaid waistbands and hems and the rest was patterned.  So I made this wrap skirt instead.....which ended up being way easier b/c there was no hemming.  I basically cut the tablecloth in half (it was really long ~96 inches.)  I made a 3 inch wasitband out of plaid fabric, gathered the tabkecloth fabric, attached it to the waistband and added buttons.  I am pretty happy with how it turned out, but since it is so fluffy I think it kinda makes me look fat Sad.  Let me know what you think.

Very, very nice! It's a very unique idea specially since I have some old tablecloths I can use!!! Smiley How did you finish the side of the skirt that you had to cut? Also, how did you secure the skirt to close???

It looks great!  The fabric is wonderful.  Fat!?!  No way!  The style reminds me of the 1950's.  Great job!

I wanted it to look kinda 1950's style.  And in person it definetly does make me look a little fat (my mom even said so!)  I think that I am going to make it less gathered so it isn't so fluffy. 

tinkleaganster-I didn't do anything to finish the side of the skirt b/c the side of the tablecloth was already finished.  I used  buttons to secure it.
