I got this material from a recycle/reuse place in Berkeley.  I loved the bright colors and had to make skirts.  They are simple A-line skirts, really easy to make.  The first one has a zipper, the second one is just a pull over.  Enjoy!

Loved both of them! You said the second was a pullover -- is the fabric stretchy? If not, how do you get it to stay up?

The fabric is not stretchy.  It just rests on my hips.  I know, probably not the best way seeing that I may lose/gain weight at some point.  But it works for now.   

Thanks for all the compliments.
