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!

  • LOVE this skirt and altogether look! That fabric is awesome.

    xo, Nina

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

    • You really should learn! And you even have a dress form so you're already one step ahead of me 😉

  • 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!

    • We used this fabric for our son's nursery curtains. I still love them a year later!

    • Lins, you should definitely use it! So fun for a boys room!

  • Love it!! Love the fabric and can't wait for your tutorial 🙂

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

  • 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!

    • It says on the website that it recommends professional cleaning, but I washed and dried it (not knowing the care instructions until after the fact) and it was fine.

  • Love this outfit and those shoes are fabulous.

  • You look so beautiful! Love the way you styled this!

  • Love the pattern!

  • So amazing!!!!

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

  • Sweet skirt!!great waverly fabric print!! Great blog!!

  • 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…

  • This is a awesome skirt! LOVE IT

  • Congrats on winning the contest! Theresa @DearCreatives
