Hellloooo Sailor!

I think this fabric is pretty cool - it has applique anchors and life preservers (except it's really too thin for applique so it bunches up a bit). I've always wanted a sailor themed skirt, so why not make one out of this.

Well, it didn't go all that great (okay, I know, I complain a lot). The proportions are off, though it's hard to tell in the photos. I'm probably the only one who will know.

The waistband is red because I had red fabric on hand, and there's no lining. I need to wear a slip because it's pretty sheer.

I made a second version of the skirt, with a white waistband, cotton lining, and somewhat different proportions. I'll be selling this one at some point.
