I like to call this my "Hooty Birthday Skirt". I decided to make myself a skirt for my birthday on Wednesday thinking that I could get it all finished in one day. I didn't quite accomplish that, but I did just finish it, right before the Crafterhours Skirt Week deadline. Shewww! Kids tend to spoil some of the sewing fun every now and then.
I used the same pattern for this skirt that I used for my Escape from Reality skirt. This time I added a few inches to the length to accomodate the large dresden plate. I really like how it turned out, but I do feel almost like I'm wearing a target. It is a very comfy skirt though, with it's elastic waist band. I will have to try something new for the next skirt. I'm feeling a bit lazy with all of the elastic. The grey fabric has been in my stash for many, many years. It is a heavy weight fabric, but I have no idea what it actually is. The dresden is made from an It's a Hoot charm pack, hence the name "Hooty Birthday Skirt". Haha!
