I'm sure like many of you, I love all of Dana's (of Made) projects. When she provided the tutorial for the circle skirt I knew that it was one I wanted to try, and I must admit I am rather pleased with the results.
I'd never dyed fabric before so the dying part was a bit of an adventure. I first dyed the elastic "purple" but it turned out an icy shade of lavender. I then dyed it dark brown...and I ended up with a nice neutral grayish brownish purple.
I love the sheen on the fabric. The plaid is pretty fun too. The fabric is actually a home decor fabric, but I couldn't find anything desirable at Joann's. Does anyone else think that there is a serious lack of desirable apparel fabric available at Joann's?
I ended up making my skirt 24" long. I'd hoped for 27", but 24 is all that I could squeeze out of my fabric. I does hit me below the knee, which I like for the fall/winter season. I think that I'm in need of a nice coordinating cardigan and some knee high socks.
