Totally random, but I thought I'd throw this out there.
|Hmm...it's a little wrinkled from being squished into my too-small closet.|
|Back: check out my beginner attempts at pattern-matching at that center seam!|
I made this half-circle skirt two years ago out of a thrifted sheet, but apparently I didn't know how to measure myself properly back then. It's a very nice skirt, but when I wear it I can't breathe. And breathing is something I'm rather attached to. I think I've only worn it a couple times (for me-made challenges, when I'll wear anything just to make it through the month), and both times I was dying the whole time. So, before I bring my bag of donations to Goodwill, would anyone out there happen to want it? I'd love for it to go to a good home where someone can appreciate that it's home-made, even if I'm not your grandma, sewing love into every stitch.
Length: 22.5" from the bottom of the waistband
Fabric: thrifted sheet, so I'm guessing it's a 50/50 poly-cotton blend...very machine washable!
Construction information: half circle skirt, 7" topstitched white zipper with a silver pull in the center back, 1" high, topstitched, interfaced waistband with a hook and eye on the tab, seam allowance in the center back is pinked, all other edges are enclosed, baby hem

|Hook and eye on the waistband. Hmm, that hook isn't looking so sturdy. It may need to be resewn. Actually, on second thought, a hook and bar would have been a better choice here.|
|The lobster that Eric won for me in one of those infamous claw machines (little green Toy Story aliens: "The Claaaaawww!") is being helpful and holding up the skirt so you can see how wide the hem is.|
It's very thin fabric, and white to boot, so you'd definitely need to wear a half-slip underneath it. It does skim the hips nicely, though, and I love the autumnal-colored flowers on it. I'm sad to let it go, but I don't want to keep it around for fifteen years waiting for an imaginary daughter who may or may not even want to wear it. If you (or someone you know) want it, just say so. If for some reason more than one person wants it, I'll have Walnut pick a winner. If no one wants it and y'all are just sitting there staring at your screen wondering why on earth this lady thinks so highly of herself that she thinks anyone would want her cast-offs, I'll bring it into Goodwill next week. Which, I realize, is still me trying to foist my unwanted clothes on someone else, but just anonymously.
