Here are the 3 skirts I made over the past few days. This time I've taken pictures of the linings too so you can see that they're much more fun that just plain muslin.
The brown floral skirt is made from an Amy Butler fabric that was on sale at Knitch. Would that I could buy all the wonderful Amy Butler fabrics to my heart's content, but alas, they're a little expensive, and those living off their hubbies need to not go too crazy.
The pink butterfly batik lining is from Wal-Mart. Yes, I never thought I would shop for fabric there, but it's not too bad for some inexpensive, 100% cottons for lining.
Next is a really fun floral on a very pale aqua background. This fabric came from Hobby Lobby, as did the solid pink lining fabric. This floral was just too lively to pass by.
I'm getting better with the installation of the invisible zippers too!
This green, which is reading more blue on my monitor, is really a bright, Chrismasy green. I got this at Gail K Fabrics last month. The wild, yellowy-green lining came from Wal-Mart. Yes, I should always take a tiny piece with me as the lining is ultra bright, but hey! It's on the inside, and it'll be our secret that I went so crazy.
I stopped by Hancock Fabrics today to purchase some cotton canvas for a bag pattern I have, and they were having a 50% off sale on some fabrics. I didn't see any I had to have for skirts, but I did pick up a lavender and bright red for skirt linings. I think I may break down and make a skirt from the skulls and roses fabric I got a couple of years ago.
I might sew some owls up today. Blame Kay of Mason Dixon Knitting. I've linked it to Kay's owl.
