Denim Patchwork Dress

I don’t remember where I got this denim from, but it had a slight stretch to it… which is why when I tried to make a box cushion cover for my couch with it that it didn’t work at all. This was before I was working at the upholstery shop where I learned that upholstery fabric is stiff and not stretchy for very good reason. It looks like crap. SO… despite all of it being cut already for cushions, I managed to scrap it together to make this skirt. The patchwork style of the skirt inspired by “lagenlook” dresses I’ve been “studying” on pinterest. I finished it just in time for my sister to visit, and of course, I gave it to her… even though it fit me perfectly!
