I am so proud that I cut this skirt out of 4 red T-shirts and packed it in my carry-on bag, started stitching it here the day we left, and finished it in St. Lucia while sitting on the beach.
I sewed a couple of hours for 2 days each, and wore it to dinner Wednesday and Thursday nights with different tops.
I found the foldable elastic Natalie Chanin recommends at Hancock, but they didn't have 1.5", so I used 1" instead. They also didn't have any solids, just wacky printed elastic, so mine is green and yellow, which looks weird with red thread zig-zagged over it, but nobody'll see it anyway - not even you! (I just realized I need some close-up pics - will get those tomorrow and then you can see the elastic.)
The knots were a little uncomfortable on my skin after a couple of hours, but that's how I found out I had a sunburn - doh!
I need to experiment with different tops, but I threw on my original AC top just to see - plus they coordinate! Close-up pics tomorrow...
