This wool crepe I got some time ago. I bought it because the seller showed me a streak running down the fold of the 45" w1de fabric. I put the 6+ yars in the wash and it came out just fine. SO I got all this fabric for $2 a yard!
I made a house robe with some of it and had enough to make this skirt. I did have to make it in true make-do-and-mend form because I had to run a seam down the middle panel. Other than that, it turned out rather well.
This thing is has a great weight to ti because of the wash. It denced the fabric and made it heavier.
This is skirt is gonna be awesome for dancing!
