Thanks everyone! AnneM: I didn't cut it on th ebias. The print is just diamond shapes.

Did you cut taht on the bias, or is that the print? Either way, having the 'squares' at angles was perfect for this fabric, I think. It transforms it into an interesting print instead of ugly fabric for curtains. :)

The fabric IS ugly, and something I would not choose. But, the skirt is, interesting, eye catching in a good way. I love it! Encourages a second look at ugly fabrics.

Yes, the fabric is from the 70's. And I remember it being on a pair of pillows I had on my blue sofa. But you did a wonderful thing by making a skirt; it looks slimming!
