I picked up this pillowcase at Goodwill, and it was entirely too cute to not make a skirt out of. I drafted the pattern from Sew What! Skirts, and put in a drawstring because I was feeling too lazy to go and buy a new zipper. The back is brown twill that I have far too much of, and it's lined with some icky acetate lining. I wouldn't have put the lining in, but the front fabric isn't the most opaque, and it helps it stand up a little better.
On to the pictures! (I'm a total zombie in these, and please ignore the messy lounge. It has better light than my dorm room.)

I still have half of the pillowcase left (it's got the same print on it). Anyone have ideas for what I should do with it?
