I saw this fabric at Jo-Ann's and fell in love with it. It made a beautiful skirt, and they're still enough there for a head band!  It's made of 4" box pleats, and a not-very-invisible zipper. It's mad comfy, and it moves beautifully!

The skirt, as modeled by my fantastic neolithic sculpture. (It was supposed to be a dress form, but it came out much more like the sculptures of pregnant cave-ladies. It's also much bigger than I am. xD)


Detail shot of the print


Action Shot! I had to stand on my toilet to get a proper picture of it, and nearly fell off. xD


I'm very fashionable today, if you can't tell. The rain has me all bundled up, and this is what I wear under it. xD

PS. it does look better on you...your dress form could be a little more you-like, haha! seems to work well enough though!

What a great use for a poinsettia border print! Like the box pleats, too.
