Geometric Reversible Skirt with Spots

I made this little skirt on Saturday, using some African wax print cotton and some spotty fabric – it is the same pattern as the skirt in my reversible skirt tutorial    I initially got the idea for this skirt from  http://verypurpleperson.com/2009/12/easy-full-skirt-and-little-tutorial.html.

This skirt is now for sale on Etsy – so be sure to check it out. (custom orders are available! – contact … Continue reading

“Party Playsuit”
