Skirt of Stars


My middle sister (there are 5 of us, all sisters!) gave me a gift certificate to my favorite local fabric store for my birthday last month. So, I grabbed my fabric-junkie friend Meg and went shopping. She picked out this awesome fabric, which is something I'd allow only her to do - give her incredible eye for my tastes. I'm in love, again...


So I leaned again on the pattern I referenced in my previous post, only this time with plenty of fabric. I kept my bias-tape waistband with a drawstring ribbon, and even made some silky "bloomers" out of a pajama shorts pattern, cut on the bias of lining fabric to wear under these skirts in the summer. They've both made their debuts, at two weddings in the last 2 weeks, and they wash up and wear wonderfully. I'll be making at least one more, I think!
