Oooh, cute.   I love corset skirts.  On a non-crafty note, I love your shoes!

It's fantastic!  Did you use a pattern or is it your own design?

I love it!
Did you use a pattern?
Also, what type of fabric is that listed as?
I've been looking for old school circus stripes without much luck at Jo-Ann's.
But, I could be looking in the wrong places...

I drafted the pattern myself just kinda on a whim, it super flattering! The fabric was actually an old bed sheet, I too have been looking for fabric like this. Aren't those shoes great! I wish I could find who made them but they were from a thrift store and have no label in them Sad

By the way, I love that you matched the stripes together at the seams.
So it is continuous instead of blotchy. it can be hard for people to match up fabrics with patterns (like plaids and stripes).
