Wild Horses and Homespun!
This is the most difficult fabric I have ever worked with. It is a wonderfully soft and floating homespun gauze. Very light weight. There is a full 4 yards in this skirt, but it is very light weight. I did ruching up the right side so that a little bit of leg can show, or it can be let down for no leg showing. It could be ruched all the way up to the waist. This is still a WIP. I am going to reinforce the seams with an organic, unfinished top stitching effect. The ruffle took forever to apply and shag the hem by hand but I love the way it turned out. It looks so pretty when ruched up. This is another no pattern skirt/dress design! I just tied the scrap on the top for grins and giggles. It is not permanent on there.
Not sure if I'll finish it off as a skirt or go ahead and attach it to the top. I love the two together, but I may just make it into an elastic waisted skirt, or a banded skirt with a drawstring, but the top is soooo perfect with this skirt. Kind of wild looking. This skirt will spin!! Hope you enjoy this one...
