Fabric, to skirt ON, 2 hours!

I needed to make a skirt. Specifically, a circular skirt.
Now, I have made many circular skirts in my time, but I do not think I made one for me before.
So, I double checked all my calculations, and ran them past my OH, and he agreed, before I went for it!
I have had the fabric sitting waiting, for a couple of weeks. I got it at Abakhan, so it was not very expensive. However, when I got it, I knew I was planning to make a circular skirt, but I hadn't worked out just what quantity I would need. So I made a mad guess, and went for it.
If I had done the working out, I would have got about another 6", so, my skirt is slightly shorter than it would normally have been..

Oh, did you want to see my new skirt? on?

Oh, alright then, here goes

 Blame my OH for these two... I am just showing off a bit!
And he chopped off my hand!

Anyone going to the retreat, who wants to have a go, can just let me know!

It is surprisingly easy and quick, and very satisfying.











And this super card arrived this week, too! Thank you Caroline, That is such a pretty card! I guess you quite liked your tote, then!

So pretty. I've made just one circle skirt for my friend's daughter, oh and there was one on the prom dress, but I really want one for myself. Thank you for the lovely inspiration, Mama Fairy! :-)
