Today I’m teaming up with Jo-Ann’s to celebrate the 90th anniversary of their Waverly fabric, a line of gorgeous home decor fabrics. They sent me this gorgeous green and teal graphic print fabric, and although it’s intended for home decor, I went outside the box a bit and made myself a fun patterned skirt  with it, inspired by this gorgeous Anthropologie skirt
I made the pattern using my favorite pencil skirt from Target, and although I didn’t make a tutorial, I’m so happy with how it turned out that I plan to make several more skirts using this pattern. I mean, any skirt with pockets is a winner in my book. So expect a tutorial soon!

    You totally inspire me to want to learn how to sew…love the skirt!

  3. I'm doing baby boy's nursery in grey and yellow with pops of green and navy. I think I need some of this fabric to incorporate! Such a great skirt!

  5. K says:

    Are those shoes comfortable? I love a wedge but the bottom looks so narrow…

  6. I love that fabric but isn't it dry clean only?? I thought it was one I had in my cart for the pillows but put it back because I didn't want to by dry cleaning my pillows!

  7. Love this outfit and those shoes are fabulous.

    The skirt has amazing print! It looks so good with the denim jacket!

  13. Sweet skirt!!great waverly fabric print!! Great blog!!

  14. How cool that you used home decor fabric to make a skirt. That's the fun of a fabric store, so much creativity! Was there not enough fabric to match up the pattern in the seams? I think that would be my only suggestion (then again, I can't really sew so I'm in NO place to give advice!)


    • That was totally my bad…I made this skirt in the middle of the night (often the only time I get to sew) and it wasn't until after it was done (only the hem left) that I realized I should have matched up the pattern on the back. So dumb on my part!! Ah well…I'm still learning…

  15. This is a awesome skirt! LOVE IT
