Crafty Skirt Swap, anyone??


Alison Willoughby's book called "49 Sensational Skirts" has me wanting to make a fun, crafty skirt!!

Anyone else interested??  

Basically, it's a standard A-line skirt, but then you have fun embellishing it. 

You'd let you partner know your measurements, of course, favorite colors, and then the LENGTH of skirt you'd like.  Perhaps some embellishment ideas, links to photos of ones you like, and then away we go!!

I'm going to limit this one to a max of just 20 people.  Signups by March 31st, sendout April 25th??

Very cool idea, I just don't wear skirts myself.  I'm pretty hippy and I feel like they only make it more obvious, lol.  I will definitely stalk the gallery though.

Sounds interesting, I saw a skirt in a magazine with feathers at the hem that I would love an excuse to make. Smiley

It's a fine line between 'hobby' & 'mental illness

I don't really have any skirts either right now, but my daughter wants me to wear more skirts and dresses like her, so that's my motivation!  Grin

I like this idea.  I shouldn't be here, but I am.  So now I want to make some fun and funky skirts!  And I think it would be fun to swap one too!

This looks like fun. I have a few ideas that would be interesting to experiment with in this vein.
