Several years ago my Mom and I went to a thrift store in Alabama while I was visiting my grandparents and I stumbled upon this Goosebumps bed sheet in practically new condition. Even though I wasn't too great at sewing at the time, I had to have it because it was in such great condition and it reminded me of my childhood. I LOVED Goosebumps! I ended up putting it in my fabric stash and it sat there for years.... until a few days ago when I finally decided to turn it into a skirt.  Wink

I didn't use a pattern.... I just winged it. It's fully lined with a black bedsheet (which I didn't get a picture of... but I'm really proud of how well it turned out on the inside!). I used 2 inch elastic and I gathered the hell out of the fabric... which has actually made the skirt quite poofy. The poof of it isn't illustrated in the photos, but it's pretty darn poofy! Oh well, though!

All in all, this skirt cost me about $10.  Grin

I think I'm going to have to start making more skirts.  Grin

Great job!
It's so cheery and I like its extreme pouffiness! Now you will really be keeping your eyes out for offbeat, licensed bedsheets. $10 for a one-of-a-kind, comfy, fun skirt? Deal!

The skirt is lovely. in fact, your whole outfit is attractive. Because I'm curious, I want to know if your skirt is reversible?
