Tired of your buns and thighs getting cold during the winter? Well I am, and this morning it was -50 in Fairbanks Alaska. So something easy to slip on and off that will keep you toasty. The snow skirt! I would love to provide instructions. I just found out about this site and thought I would enter the contest with well my finished project. I just made it yesterday in 3 hours! I don't have enough supplies to do a demo for the contest but will get them turned in as soon as the weather breaks and goes back to -30 and I can get to the craft store. Happy viewing.
Awe great thought I8nite. Well the material I used were mostly reperpused items but you could do with a few thrift shop items. I had this great lavender dress that, well never fit. It was too long. The dress ended up as my outer layer. Just an organic cotton dress that I cut down to make the skirt. Then I used 200 weight polar fleece about a half yard for the warm middle layer. Then I used some windblocker materia lfor the inner layer that is slippery so that the &quot;skirt&quot; didn't stick to my jeans every time I sit For the waist I didn't have a zipper so I cut one out of a skirt that I never wore... Since this is always going to be put on over pants and most possibly boots I thought it would be good to have a zipper on the side for easy on and off. I stiched the inner 2 layers (polar fleece and wind breaker) together then added them to the outer layer (cotton) with a zipper for easy on and off. I hope to add an embelishment to the side of the skirt to pep it up a bit. I am going to make my next one with the outer layer being a duck cotton (like carharts) and I will post the step by step photos. Thanks!<br>
even without pictures you could do a more detailed description of what materials you used. Welcome to the insanity of taking pictures of every thing you do in case you might make an &quot;ible&quot; to share with the world!
