Bed Sheet Starboard Skirt

Saturday, August 27, 2011

A free tutorial exists on, a guestpost by SimpleSimon&Co for The Starboard Skirt which is intended for a child.

I've made an adult version using the same tutorial, which is really simple to follow. My skirt took less than one hour to complete.

I used a thrifted floral bird print bed sheet, purchased for $5 from Savers, and used less than 1/4 of the sheet, so I calculate the skirt to be less than $1 to make.

Camera set up to take full length photo, but my little furry friend wanted some fuss instead - how can I resist her?

Jacket: Max&Co - thrifted
Scarf: Gifted
Shoes: Ann Taylor Loft - thrifted
Tights: Gifted
Brooch: Gifted
Clutch bag: Thrifted and refashioned
Black Cat: Originally from a cat rescue center ;)

super cute skirt, really so simple? That will be my dream come true skirt, cuz I'm a dummy when it comes to sewing complicated patterns. Looks great with your adorable clutch!
