Tablecloth Pose

Please note that this skirt is not made from a table cloth! I called it a "table cloth" skirt because, as you can see in the photo, the finished skirt resembles a fitted tablecloth for a square table when held out. I regret giving it this name, which has caused confusion, but it's rather late to change it now.

  6. You could add some little snaps or buttons and wear this as a sort of boho caftan. My mom made me an awesome caftan from an actual tablecloth! It was red and white and particularly awesome. Hey! It was the 70's and I was a teenager! LOL!
