So I found a tutorial at getcrafty.com for a wrap skirt and decided to try it this miracle find at the local Goodwill, there in the bedding section was about 7 yards of fabric just calling me to be used for this skirt. So here is what happened.












I would love some construtive critisim for next time, ect, ect.
Here's the link for the tutorial if anyone wants it:

Very nice! I'm not usually a fan of homemade skirts, but yours looks really good--I would totally think you bought it if I passed you on the street. (: I love the fabric and colors, too.

ahh! that flipping rocks. it looks so simple too. is it very curved? i might have to make one- i've been desperate for easy projects because i don't have a (working!) sewing machine.

Thanks for all the great feedback guys, I really appreciate it.

meggan: the skirt isn't as rounded as the on at getcrafty, but thats just because i added an extra pannel for my etra wide hips, darn being Greek.
