Skirts Were Made

They're Frankenstein skirts, but skirts they are. They have darts and facings and lots and lots of loose threads. You don't want to see the seams.

This is a photo of me wearing the skirt, or rather of my midsection reflected in our filthy bathroom mirror. I made it from upholstery fabric. There's a joke somewhere in there about my ass, but I am too late for work to make it.
Also? The ribbon on the (low, hip-slung) yoke has wire running around the inside of it, which props up my belly nicely. That makes this the first underwired skirt in existence.

In fact, it's given me an idea for a whole new line of women's skirts. Next I will develop an underwire for my butt, holding it aloft. Lift and separate, baby. Lift and separate.
Here's a better view of the fabric, which I love:

That's a really cute skirt... and the idea for underwire panties? Brilliant. We've got bras, why not underwear? :)

That's the beauty part, Jo - they're so easy you can make your own!
