okay, so i made this awhile back and havent posted till now.. sorries lol i made it for my textiles class.. i found this denim at goodwill for.. get this.. $2.00!!!!!! *GASP* .. FOUR YARDS OF IT!!! i jumped up and down.. people were lookin at me goofy.. anyways.. heres what i made with it.. i completely made the pattern up on my own, i originally made it out of muslin just to make sure it all fit and such Smiley

(yes, i know that laid out it looks like a gosh darn square)

(dont mind the ridiculously dirty mirror.. i haven't had time to clean it.. i've been crafting.. duh lol)

thats it! i love this skirt! i can dress it up or dress it down! i decided not to distress it because i liked how clean and sharp it looked.. what do you all think?

It's really nice. The cheapest denim I can get around my neck of the woods is 4 ($8ish) per metre!

Remember: To the world you might be one person, but to one person you might be the world.

See my website for my products (will post to anywhere in UK at cost of postage and packaging). It is a little out of date due to a server crash. Please email me if you want a custom order

That's an awesome price for denim, and the skirt is adorable! I'm a huge fan of goodwill fabric, I just got some there yesterday. :p
