I love this one! I'm a little concerned about how it will do in the washer with all the safety pins, though. Any thoughts?

You can either put it in a lingerie bag or take the pins out each time. I vote former. As for the skirt, love the concept and love it.

Did you get the idea from generation tee? I've made a lot of the projects from that book but wasn't totally convinced about that one. But I really love yours!!

How cute!!!
What if you super glue the pins so they don't come undone in the wash?

use a pair of pliers to pinch the saftey pins permanently closed. then I'd also use some fray check around the bottom of the pin on the fabric to prevent it from tearing.

If you need to wash it put it in a pillowcase and tie a knot in the top or use a scrunchie to secure the top.  Wash on gentle cycle and pretreat any stains with a bit of soap as soon as they happen.

It should be fine that way. Smiley It looks great and totally wearable! Great job!

I'd recommend not putting it in the washing machine at all, things like this are best washed by hand. Cool idea.

I did get the idea from Generation T! I love that book. Did you know there is a second one out now? Can't remember the name....something like "Beyond Fashion." It's great too.

Thanks for all the ideas and comments!

I have Generation T....I always kinda wondered how that would look....I've never been one for long skirts so I never made one, but yours looks amazing!
As for washing...I use safty pins on my clothes (and forget about them) all the time...And forget about them...The worst my safty pins have done in the wash is rust a small bit on the fabric...But of all my safty pinned clothes it only happened to one in like one place, personally I wouldn't worry about it.

Me too. I always forget about my safety pins and just throw the clothes in, pins and all. Sometimes they rust a bit, but you only really notice on white clothes. I'd advise putting your skirt in a pillow case as said above though. Because it's a bit longer and physically held together with pins, if it got tangled around another garment in the wash the pins could rip a bit of a hole, stretch out and distort the garment. Looks great by the way!
