Table Cloth Skirt

Some of you may remember by table cloth skirt fiasco. Well I tried it again. This time with better fabric. I found this fabric at the Goodwill. It was something like $4.00. Sometime later when I was showing the fabric to someone I saw that it was Amy Butler fabric. I love Amy Butler and to get a remnant of her fabric for $4.00. That is what my boys would call "awesome." So here is my second attempt at the table cloth skirt. I measured this one better, I sewed slower, and I checked the fit more. The result: a beautiful skirt. A skit to wear on a cruise, if I was ever going on one. The tutorial can be found at V. and Co.
So after some research and being told that this fabric was hard to come by I found it on the Amy Butler wesbite. In case anyone is interested here it is August Fields.
