Once upon a time (read: last month), I stumbled upon a gorgeous floral fabric at Metro Ayala. It was cotton and it cost only P35 per meter. That’s less than a dollar, FYI. Because nobody in their right mind would resist pretty and cheap cotton, I got a meter and proceeded to hack it to make myself another full skirt:
I used this full skirt with pocket pattern. Construction took me a coupe of hours. Unfortunately, when it was time to attach the waistband closure, I realized that I was out of hook-and-eye.
A 5-minute rummage through my button stash resulted in sewing magic. I saw this lone button that looked like it was made for the pretty fabric.
How awesome is that? If this isn’t true love, I don’t know what is.
