Dreamy Paisley Skirt







Romantic, dreamy, four-tiered, comfortable, boho, gypsy skirt. How's that for a description? It sort of qualifies as a refashioned or repurposed project as well because the material I made it out of was originally being used as a table cloth for a round end table and as sofa pillow coverings. I love paisleys; so I didn't want to throw out the fabric. There was enough fabric to make myself, my daughter and her doll a skirt. If you are wondering what that is peaking out from beneath, it's pantaloons. It kind of added to the romantic feel.

I am so sorry, but I can't find the pattern. I believe it is out of print. If I find it, I'll be sure to add it to this post.
