  3. I made one of these for my daughter by recycling a mans shirt. My man is skinny but I reckon a big bloke could provide a small skirt for a little lady! Check out my link here...

  6. Almost finished making this, just need to finish the hem.... I used about 1.2 m of material for those who want to make it, although I have quite a small waist (not boasting or anything....!). Really easy to make after you get your bearings! Enjoy making it! xxx

  18. I have never successfully sewed a piece of clothing, but this skirt and your amazingly clear instructions make me want to try again! Also, I put your book on my birthday wish list!

  19. I saw this when you first posted it two years ago and thought, "wow, this skirt looks lovely and easy to make, I'll have to give it a go someday..." but didn't know which fabric I could use. Now I've just re-read your post and I'm thinking, "hey, why not make it a stash-busting project and sew it up in thislobster print fabric which has been sitting in my stash for more than 6 months? So...I'll let you know if I finally make it!
