So I found a nice mint green scallop-edge tablecloth at Salvation Army secondhand store:
I liked the scallop edge and the fact that the tablecloth was already curved along the edges. This could make a nice circle skirt dress, I thought as I bought the tablecloth.
And so a few days ago I set out to make just that.
The tablecloth was sort of oval shaped, so I chopped off the two ends to make two half-circles, and used the middle part to make the top.
I wanted some of that fancy scallop edge on the top as well, so I cut the top front in three pieces to make this:
The back and waistband I made just as usual. (And I totally forgot to take pictures of this...)
And here it is:
Since I had extra fabric, I also added pockets into the side seams of the skirt:
So this is what the dress looks like in full view:
I think it's pretty neat. What do you think? ^_^
