that's a really lovely skirt, but i feel like you should know "gypsy" is actually a racial slur for the Roma people (pronounced Rahma)
As far as I know, I don't think she means it to offend. It's the name of the type of skirt; she did not name it that.

But it's a lovely skirt, and I'm going to attempt to make one myself!

a moment of silence, please, for those who never had the chance, they show up to a partybut they're never asked to dance, the losers, the liars, the bastards, the theives, the cynicists, the pessimists, and those who don't believe in nothing...

i wasn't trying to attack you, i knew you didn't mean to offend which is why i said "i feel like i should tell you..." instead of saying "OHMIGOD HOW DARE YOU!", i just thought you should know for future reference. no worries.

That gypsy skirt is cool.  I've also heard it called Broomstick skirt, but that could be another politically incorrect argument too; hehe.

Anyways.  Silly question but what is meant in the step where you say baste?  I'm an advanced beginner sewer and I've made totes and quilts thus far.  Haven't heard of this term.  Someone please explain?

Thank you for the tute!!!  It's very pretty.  I think it looks awesome as is, but it's a woven and would fray.  maybe just do a line of stitching 1/4 inch from the edge for the frayed look but still finished =-)

I bought a skirt like that at Target for $12. Now that I've seen your skirt & your tutorial, I'm thinking maybe I should have tried to make one  Roll Eyes. I'll try to make one & see if I'm meant for skirts. Great job!
