Way back before we moved to Saudi, I found this awesome cotton fabric at Joann’s:
As soon as my daughter saw it she was in love. With it being a bit of a heavy cotton I had no idea what to do with it, so I just bought a couple of yards and held on to it until inspiration struck. Finally, after at least five months of it sitting around, I decided it would have to be a skirt. There was no other option, a dress wouldn’t drape at all, a pillow would get ruined in about two nights, and I don’t have a clue how to make a pair of shorts using only a serger.
Oh yeah, I should have mentioned that earlier…when we moved we packed light. As in only one-two suitcases per person. So, there I was with two yards of fabric, a zipper, and a serger that I bought after about five minutes of living here. A bit of brainstorming, lots of horrible drawing, and a few measurements later, I cut into the only Marvel fabric in the country. Somehow, I ended up with a skirt I am incredibly proud of. A cute little waistband, a zipper, and pleats for movement!
