ReFashion week 2: circle skirt from old bedsheet

I've had this tutorial on cut out + keep bookmarked for a long time, and when I came across this old and ugly sheet in the back of my closet, I knew tha moment had come.



For this skirt a full circle of fabric is cut, which makes it very swirly - just as I love it! Adding a waistband was all that was left to make it a skirt.
Apart from the color, which - you must admit - is not exactly charming. There were also a few stains, so I decided to dye it with some dark fabric color.
Le voila after dying and finishing the hem.


The color is great, but sadly the stains still show through, and there's quite a lot of them. So I still need an idea of how to cover them up before I can wear it.
Any ideas?

you can find the tutorial here:

Aplikationen, liebe Yaga! Leichter als Stickerei und mindestens genauso hübsch und definitiv abdeckend.

ja ich hab schon daran gedacht, ich frag mich einfach ob die wirken würden und welche form... ich hab grad echt keinen design-plan für diesen rock... oO

what about a piece of vintage fabric, or an old doily xo

i think if you dye the skirt again... but with the double of "ink"... the stains go away...

at least that worked for me with a old luck t-shirt...

I agree with dying it again. I've had the same problem in the past.

Fabric paint and some brushes... either that or a uneven dye job will fix it!

also do you know where the tutorial went or can you make a similar one?

Dear MamaMay,
oh, it's a pity they seem to have taken that tute down. I found a slightly longer and more elaborate one, but their instructions on the maths for the circle and how to cut it by folding the piece of fabric are basically the same:

I hope this helps!
Thanks for visiting! :o)
