Yellow Floral Skirt

Simplicity #1080.

Pattern-combining is a skill that I really admire in others. I found a couple of unrelated fabrics in the half-off cottons, so decided to give it a try. Though this started off as a dress, I realized it would never be worn. So the whole top section was chopped off and I took in some width at the waist. A drawstring runs through the waistband. The skirt can be worn so that the waist is flat in front, with the fullness moved to the back.
