Same dress, take two

I'm wearing it today (with a cream shirt) and have received a lot of positive feedback...
I can see myself making more of this skirt. They are easy to make and terribly comfortable. The only constraint will be the fabric. I need a little over 2 1/2 yards of fabric and lining fabric. For sake of argument, I bought three yards of each, knowing I'd have leftovers to put in my stash. On both of them I used the $1.99/yd quilter's cotton. The black flowered fabric was $4.99/yd and today's fabric was $6.99/yd. Both were 30% off at Joann's.

If you go by 'average' - I made both of these skirts for about $18 each. Or the black one for a little over $16 and today's a little over $20.

Fuzzy math, I know. Overall, this was a worthwhile adventure.

Thanks for all the kind compliments yesterday - I really appreciate them!

Let me know when you get some of these up on Etsy - preferably in a slimming fabric print that magically removes 10 pounds from my hips and thighs.
Looks amazing!!
