Rocket Skirt

While searching on Spoonflower for fabric with a space theme, I found some fabric with a border of space shuttles launching at night. I feel in love with it, bought a yard in basic cotton, and when it arrived I made it into a skirt….

I know it’s not the best photo of the skirt, but it was windy the day I too the photo and… well… I had trouble keeping the skirt still.

I didn’t use a pattern to make the skirt. Instead, I cut the fabric in half, sewed the seams with a french seam, hemmed the skirt, and added the waistband and elastic.

I might buy some more fabric in the future and make another skirt, but instead of buying cotton I’ll buy silky faille. I bought some fabric for a future project in silky faille and the colors are so much bolder than the cotton. As much as I like the skirt I made, I don’t think the basic cotton does the design justice color-wise.

Well, that’s about it for the skirt! It’s not a very complex project, but I sure do like to wear my new skirt! 😀
