A while back I went thrift shopping and ended up buying a flat sheet because I liked the fabric. You can read all about that shopping trip here. This is what it looked like. At the time I had no idea what I was going to do with it, so it just sat there in my sewing room for a couple months.
Then last week, a friend sent me a link to a tutorial for a tiered skirt, which I wanted to try out. As I was searching for some fabric that I'd have enough of, I came across the sheet. I'm not sure what size it was, but it would be enough to try that tutorial! When I got done with my skirt, I thought, wouldn't it be cute if I could make Amanda a matching skirt? As I looked at what was left of the sheet, I realized there might be enough of it if I turned the way the stripes run!
