Here's easy sewing project. I bought a bunch of silk neckties at our local thrift store, and I sewed them together to make a skirt. If you want to try this, I would suggest that you get approximately one tie for each inch of your waist size. My waist and hips are not very different in size. At the waist, I simply turned the fabric to the inside and sewed it down with some seam tape covering the raw edge. It tends to get too thick if you try to have more than two layers. See how great it turned out!
