I just made a really cute skirt from a pair of men's pants. 50% cotton, 50% rayon, olive-y brown, basically a soft dark khaki. Homemade 30's style cotton bias waistband, patch pockets made from the cuffs of the pants.
I forgot to try it on before making the waist. Is anyone out there a 40" waist, 44" hip (I'm guessing that's a size 12-14ish?) if so, the skirt's yours! (I really don't want to resize the whole thing, easier just to start over, but this baby needs a home). First responder who's the right size gets it! (I also posted this as my facebook status, so it's the first responder on either my blog or my wall)
