I've really started to enjoy creating these plus size skirts. I've made myself at least 20 in the last 6 months. They're so much fun, and I'm always getting compliments on them. It's nice to be able to wear something different, since all of us plus size ladies know how difficult it is to find unique clothing. Here are a few skirts that I'm quite proud of!



That is my "Camping Hunks" skirt! It makes me giggle every time I look at it!



That's my Outer Space skirt. I LOVE the colors on this one! I nearly flipped when I found the fabric!



Femme power! I found this awesome women superhero fabric and knew it had to be a skirt!



Marvel Comics skirt!



This Star Trek one was worn to a convention on Sunday and was commented on my celebrities! Totally made my week!

Nice!!  The camping hunks one reminds me of my little brother's G.I. Joe sheets back in the early '80s.  Grin

Love these and that you wear them higher like that. I am not sure I could pull off the hunk in a skirt but love them. Great job.

YESSSSS! i love these, i also make myself a rediculous amount of skirts... one of my favorite things to use is old sheets... you can find so many awesome prints as well as weaves of fabric. I found this one amazing portuguese cotton set with striping, like this:
 http://i01.i.aliimg.com/img/pb/589/057/384/384057589_662.jpg
and used it to practice bias sewing, and made myself a jumper and skirt, both on the bias. it was so rad, i feel like i leveled up.

I'm curious, are those a 4 panel a-line? they look wonderful on you.

YOURE MASTER BLASTER NOW!  Grin
