VINTAGE SHEET SKIRTS
I have been wanting to make a pillowcase skirt, or a skirt out of vintage sheets for ages... I just never got around to it. Until the thought came back on Wednesday. I figured I better move quick if I plan to ever get this done. So on Wednesday afternoon I went to a second hand store looking for a easy skirt pattern. Something I could put a elastic waistband in, and that had a sort of triangle shape to it. I found what I was looking for and it cost me 10 cents! *hooray*
I chose to do the skirt on the right without the ruffle, cause I am not the best darn sewer yet and I didn't want to bomb at my first attempt. The first skirt I made is out of a double sized vintage sheet that had some small holes here and there and wouldn't fit on any of my beds anyways. I was using it for a background for pics.. but eh! I will find a new one.
Warning: Bad hair day (Actually I didn't even brush it I was too busy sewing.) lol
So here is my underwater crab blowing bubbles skirt.
(I sort of have a thing for crabs, they make me smile.)
I love the bright yellow and orange together. Even though this is a patterned skirt I really want to add a fabric applique to it! I just don't know what!
I am wearing it garage saling tomorrow so I better figure it out fast. A strawberry may.... be cute.. *hmm*
I plan on making a few more of these, for the really hot summer days that you don't want to sleep with nothing but a sheet... (I mean "wear something light and airy to keep cool")
So if you have vintage sheets laying around that you don't have a use for, make yourself some skirts.
