I guess you know what duvet covers look like! This is the end of one.
I need some basic summer skirts, so this will be a 'beige' version, even though the fabric is a quiet tan stripe.
It will keep the skirt interesting, but still allow me to wear it with blouses that make their own statement. A bit like tone on tone embroidery.
For the rest of the bedding 'fabric'....
I sometimes make skirts to send to my friend who works in an orphan village in Ethiopia. The little ones get a lot of clothes sent, but the ones 10 and up need things. So I made six skirts from the duvets and dust ruffles. There were more stains on these things than I originally thought. But 6 skirts (plus 1 for me) is better than all of it getting tossed.
One from the tan stripe, one from a blue/white stripe and 4 from 2 red dust ruffles.
