Maxi skirt

From this 

To this!

An unloved linen sheet dyed blue and made into a long gathered skirt. I think I like it?!
My idea for a linen skirt came from a burdastyle pattern. Linen maxi skirt #122. I didn’t use the pattern as I thought I could work it out with just a simple made up waistband pattern and rectangle of fabric. Although I’m not sure how to add the bottom bias piece. I might still have a go. 
I’ve got fabric left for a little dress using this pattern.

I’ve already made the top using the fabric underneath the pattern and it worked out ok. Wiksten tank top is the pattern. http://www.shopwiksten.com/product/tank-top-sewing-pattern-downloadable-pdf

It’s quick and easy with little fitting required!
