When I thrifted two polka-dot pillowcases a few months back (a year ago, perhaps), I knew they were destined to become a skirt.
On Monday late afternoon, I decided I wanted a new skirt to wear to that night's town meeting and I knew exactly which one I would make.
I'm not going to lie. This skirt has issues. The first and most annoying issue is that this pillowcase had seams on both sides. You may not be able to notice it, but there is a seam running straight down the middle of the skirt. I had hoped that the front and back could be their own separate panels with a side zipper, but it wouldn't work for the A-line skirt I had in mind. If I had just made a simple straight pillowcase skirt, it could have worked. Instead I had to make do and live with a very seamy skirt. But, alas, I have two front panels and two back panels and a zipper in the back.
The facing is a bit funky, but who's going to see that?
