Okay...  I tried to post this earlier today and kept getting kicked off the forum, so hopefully I won't wind up with three identical posts or something.  Here goes.

I probably look at the clothing forums most often, but being sort of sew-challenged, this is my first post here!  Two very low-effort skirts.

First one, it was a long jean skirt, very much not my style.  I chopped it off to make a short skirt, and attacked it with a ten-pack of multicolored sharpies.

The front:

The back: (because who doesn't want an achor on their butt?)

And then a close-up of the doodles:

Next one is just that ten-second t-shirt skirt that was all over the forums for a while, I'm sorry I don't remember where I found the tut.  I took a men's medium (probably a large would have worked better, the waist is a bit tight).  It was plain grey, so I wanted to add some decoration-- but no fabric in the apartment and no fabric store within walking distance!  And it was midnight.  What to do?  Well, the answer to all quandries at midnight in my neighborhood is:  Walgreens.  Which did not have fabric, but had these multicolored patches to sew onto pants and things.  So I bought a pack in pants-type colors, cut out some stars, stitched them on, and voila:

Beach skirt!

I want to put some stars on the back, too, because it looks a little too much like it used to be a tshirt...

What do you think??

Um, did you say low effort?!?!
That first skirt is amazing! I have tried to do awesomely random doodles like that before, and it is harder than it looks! (despite everything anyone has ever said about doodles... maybe I am just artistically challenged? O_O;Wink

Wow, thanks, guys!  My doodling prowess is the product of too many years of high school spent covering notebooks with squiggles.

Gasp; I really want both skirts. You are really talented. You just inspired me to do a starry 50's sundress.

Holy crapola! I love the jean skirt. I'm a big fan of flowing doodles like that, and you are great at it!  Cheesy
