Who woulda' thunk a tablecloth could be worn so well? :o) I LOVE your entire outfit, right down to the SHOES. This skirt is so cute on you! I hope you wear it LOTS.

Absolutely brilliant! I've started my own tablecloth skirt, & I'm thinking there are going to be so many out there that we might just need to have a Skirt Party! ;D

Thanks so much for the tutorial. This is a quick and fun skirt to make. I would love some fabric like yours.

Oh please don't take us out of the loop on this one, rivergum! We all want to know what you discover about the shapes! This is so much fun.........

I'll have to study it again, rivergum. I did think it was 4 corners, but could be wrong. Please do let me know what you learn! (If you want to email me privately, my email address is in the profile of my blog.)

sfshaza, you are so clever! I could look at that inspiration dress for hundred years and still not figure out how it is drafted. I ran up a muslin this afternoon and this will definitely become a favourite dress! The only thing I wonder having made the black dress larger and lightened it to see better, is if it perhaps a hexagon rather than a square at the top. If you follow the points of the corners upwards, they hit further in from where the side seams would be if there were any. It looks as if there might be a corner at each 'side seam', plus two in front and presumably another 2 at the back, making 6. A hexagon is not as easy as you cannot tear it (the tearing was one thing that made this skirt so easy and quick), but I have a lot of muslin fabric and will have a go some time. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Love your skirt and the play on plaids....and so pretty how you have it styled with the orange jacket and shoes!

Great skirt and wouldn't it be fun to do a sewalong? I love the whole outfit.

I'm so glad I saw this in person. It's even more wonderful. I can't wait to make it myself, although it will be a challenge to get fabric as fabulous as yours. Thanks for posting the instructions... and thanks for letting me try on the fantastic shoes :-)

I don't know why my comments double up, sorry about that. I just read the blog instructions & can't wait to try this skirt. My granddaughter loves to twirl; how could u adapt this for a child? Thanks! Mary Taylor
