When I found this sheet at the thrift store, I clutched it tightly to my chest.  I looked all around to make sure no one was going to steal it from me, then marched triumphantly to the register with my prize.  I can't remember how much I paid, but it was probably less than $2.  It sat forlornly in my stash for quite some time before I had the nerve to take scissors to it.  I used a Vogue pattern that I adore, but I left off the waistband and just put in elastic.  It is almost floor length.  It just brushes the tops of my feet.  Sorry I don't have any action shots, but it probably looks better laying flat than it does on me  Wink  But I wear it proudly anyway.

That fabric makes my heart sing.

If I saw you in that skirt, I'd hug you. I love it!
