A few weeks ago I found these purty pillowcases at Savers. Someone had spent hours embroidering a design on them and I just had to bring them home with me. But not to use as pillowcases.
I followed the general directions for the Starboard Skirt from Simple Simon and Co. and tah dah! So easy (especially since the fabric was pre-hemmed) and so cheap (the pillowcases were 50 cents each) and now I have a summery, nautical skirt to love.
