Details of swap:  **UPDATED TO BE ANY TYPE OF SKIRT - QUESTIONNAIRE UPDATED TOO**
Alison Willoughby's book called "49 Sensational Skirts" has me wanting to make a fun, crafty skirt!!  My daughter wants me to wear skirts and dresses, so she is my inspiration for this swap.  Interested in joining me???

Basically, it's a skirt (now any type of skirt).  The skirt itself should be a simple skirt.  Then comes the fun.  Embellish the skirt with some sort of fun stuff.  Could be appliqué, could be ruffles, could be beadwork, the possibilities are endless!

I have some links below (under the participant list) that show some great ideas - a couple of them are recon projects, too!  For more examples, you can do a google search of "Alison Willoughby skirts" and then click on "Images".  Or you could just type "embellished skirts" or even just "skirts".  There are a million cute ideas out there - they are all so fun!

THIS IS A NO EXTRAS SWAP.  Just the skirt!

I've just updated the swap details.  It's no longer just an "a-line" skirt.  Now it can be any kind of skirt and the questionnaire has been updated to include styles of skirts that you prefer, and styles of skirts you do not like...

I also just looked through my copy of the book Sew Serendipity and discovered that there are some skirts in there, with some ideas for embellishments too!!

I've been looking for other online inspiration, and I've found some.  I'll start posting links above in the 2nd post just under the questionnaire info.
