I started with a lace curtain. I'm sorry I don't have a before photo, but in this after photo you can get a pretty good idea of what the curtain looked like:
I used it as the middle layer of my daughter's circle skirt.
Unfortunately, I didn't finish the edge of the lace curtain and it frayed really badly in the wash! So I just (refashioned!) the skirt by cutting out that beautiful lace layer. However, lesson learned! To read more about this skirt and see gobs of twirling photos, visit me here at Skirt Fixation.
