Camoflauge Gathered Skirt and Lace Ruffled Strap Tank

Isn't it ironic, I was in the military for 8 years and I despised wearing fatigues/camouflage.  I had to wear fatigues/camo every single work day.   They were the most hideous uniform for a women especially, and they were heavy and not complimentary to your body.  I know that there is a reason for that, your taught your a soldier first and a women second.  

But fast forward, 23 years later I am in love with camouflage.  This gathered skirt made with fabric from Walmart believe it or not is one of my favorites.  I can't wait to make it in a Midi.  I don't really do Maxi's but I absolutely love Midi's.    






Happy Sewing!

  2. It's definitely more fun to wear camo as a matter of choice. Your skirt turned out great. Midi length would be perfect as well.

  3. So lovin this dress, Melanie! My husband is retired Air Force and he currently works on post at Fort Knox, so I've lived in a world surrounded by fatigues. This is the "prettiest" I have ever seen it! Happy sewing my friend.
