The simplest skirt in the world is made of 2 rectangles! On top a straight facing, done! Now you have a 50s-dancing-skirt. It doesn’t have to be made of a table cloth, it can be made of every other piece of fabric. The width of the fabric should start at 100cm, the length for the skirt ending at the knees should be 140cm. It is made in one hour, a step-by-step-tutorial is here for you online. Have fun at sewing:-)
Everybody has an old sweater somewhere. Maybe it doesn´t fit anymore or is just not your taste anymore. Don´t throw it away, there are may things you can make out of it – like an owl shaped pillow.
