I bought these dish towels back in January at Anthropologie with the full intent of making them into summer skirts for the girls.
Today I finally did it. I cut the towels in half lengthwise and stitched up the sides. I then made a casing out of fabric from my stash and attached it to the towel making little hand pleats along the way. I tried gathering, but the towel was a little bulky. I pulled some elastic through the casing and voila, skirts!
