Not to give too much of my awesome plans away, but I have chosen to use one of Indygo Junction free vintage patterns, the “One Seam Skirt.” Here is the drawing provided with the pattern instructions:

It’s a pretty simple concept, one yard of fabric used to make a 27 inch skirt with a zipper closure, pockets and a cummerbund to cover the waist. Here is the fabric I am using:

I bought it second-hand, and it’s super soft. I’ve only got a little over a yard, so hopefully I don’t screw up too bad. I might use another fabric for the cummerbund. Anyway if you sew check it out… but don’t try too hard, I could use some sweet new fabric and notions. 🙂
