Hand-Me-Down Horror 10. Sneak Preview

Finally got round to making something out of this monstrosity, how many times have you seen something like this in a Thrift store/Charity Shop? Floor length pleated to the nth degree, Yuck right? stay tuned people I'm pretty proud of how this one is turning out.



This is the fabric opened out but before I'd even ironed it, I only unpicked one seam in case I needed to piece two pattern pieces together across a seam.

People start looking at thrift stores for these types of skirts, lots of useable fabric for little lay out. I also used a sewing pattern from Burdastyle for this one so it's something you can try out too.

I,m guessing the one seam u unpicked was the waistband, is the rest double material or the complete skirt unwrapped?? sorry I know I,m a thicko X

No not at all, the waistband was unpicked too and one side seam making it one layer of the fabric.
