Pleated Pillowcase Skirt

It started with another garage sale pillowcase...



... and ended with some red one-inch squares leftover from my cathedral window quilt. I ripped out the pillowcase edge and set it aside for the waistband. The skirt is constructed from the remainder of the pillowcase slit open lengthwise. The buttonhole maker on my sewing machine no longer catches the feed dogs, so I had to get creative with snap and hook & eye placement. I think I'll wear this to Fourth celebrations! I'm not usually one for high waists and tulip shapes, but this is quite nice. :-)
