Tablecloth Skirt

My last post was for a tablecloth and this one is for a "tablecloth" skirt. Ha! That's totally coincidental.

I've wanted to make this skirt since I saw on Shams' blog
Thank you for sharing your pattern!


I followed her instructions as to size and sewing directions except I hemmed mine last thing.  I was almost finished with it and realized it was too long.  So I took 2" off just the long points. 

And now that I've made it, I love it! 

It fits great, hangs so nicely and it swishes when I walk :)





Since it takes over 3 yards of fabric, I made sure to pick something that's not too heavy.  This fabric is perfect for this skirt.  It's a very drapey, soft fabric, but ravels horribly, and I believe is a rayon.  I found in my stash, and I have no idea when or where I got it. There were a couple of rips in the fabric, but I was able to cut around them.




Here's a picture of the back.
