NEW SKIRT: I HEART DOTS

I have a new favorite skirt! While organizing my fabric stash, I found this lovely dotted piece of material. I’m pretty sure I bought it to create a new skirt, but time and laziness kept the piece in my stash for a few years.

All I needed was a day to create this simple elastic waistband skirt. After the floral wrap skirt disaster, I decided to stick with the elastic waistband (I prefer the 3-inch elastic pieces) until I learn how to install zippers.

I know the main fabric is navy blue with big white dots, but I found a fat quarter with black or blue dots in the messy stash. I’m 99% sure the dots are black, but I don’t think the dark color matters too much when used as a contrast piece.

However, I am 100% in love with the new skirt! I can wear it all year round — just pair some tights and sweater in the winter and some sandals and shirt in the spring and summer. I’m so happy! Now, I need to buy more 3-inch elastic for future skirts!
