Stripes Are A Good Thing...Part Two!

If you've been following along, you'll remember from "Stripes Are A Good Thing...Part One" that it all began with an oversized blue dress and a men's polo shirt.


Part one ended with this dress...


Next is part two, using the leftovers....


...which resulted in this skirt.


A fun, comfortable skirt with patch pockets on the front.


A buttoned slit at the back.


And, stripes down the side.



  

It was beautiful, but slightly windy day at the Oregon beach!


Here's how it all came together:












Hem it any way you prefer.  To get the most length I could, I serged the edge, turned it up 1/2" and stitched it by hand with a blind stitch.

I like to link to these great parties.

  2. I can't tell you how many times I have sacrificed length to get around a button placket! A split! Now why didn't I ever think to use it as a split??? You are awesome, and that's a fact.
