It's circle skirt week over at The Sew Weekly. Here is my contribution!
I used a free, 100% cotton, bed sheet (I got it from a giveaway bin in front of a store that was going out of business) for the skirt and a remnant from this refashion for the top.
I used a mash up of knowledge to figure out how to cut the waist circle (then got scared it would be too small and ended up making it too big! Trust your math!) and I used the scalloped waistband from this pattern. I winged it on the top.
I let it hang for a day or so (to allow the bias to set), but I went the cheater’s way on the hem and just serged and folded it under (as you can see below if you look closely). I spent too much time on that damn top! I do love those turquoise buttonholes and buttons on it.
I like the way the skirt looks, though it's far from perfect. I feel a bit dainty in it, lol. I love all of the cropped top/high waist skirt combos that have been popping up on blogs and pinterest. I’m happy to get in on the game with that peek of belly ;D
I can also wear the top without it tied up. I probably should have taken this pic before the others, the bottom is a little bunchy. This fabric is meant to be twisted and scrunched while wet so that it will crinkle, it will look better after a spin in the wash.
More pics and a bit more info on my blog.
