Ugly Skirt

They said, “What are you thinking??”  They said, “What’s this from – a muumuu?” and I said, “I know- this fabric is ugly… but I love it.”

Like the suiting fabric from my Peplum Dress, this material was found in my husband’s grandfather’s attic.  I think it’s like FROM the 70s.  It’s a cotton, as far as I can tell.  And man – it’s brilliant.  The gold leafing actually has a bit of shine to it… amazing.

I used this tutorial from The Big Oak Tree as a launching point (I ended up cutting the rectangular pieces into A-line shapes, and I didn’t make a bow).
