I made a prototype of my 'easy tube skirt' last week, it turned out OK, a bit rough round the edges but fine if you're admiring it from a distance! It needs a few simple improvements, perhaps an exposed zip at the back so it's a bit easier to get on and off (I have to wiggle in and out of it, it's pretty tight!) It took me about an hour and I used a thick stretchy jersey material, which cost £2.95 a metre. Bargain, and I have some left over. Perhaps I'll make a hair band.
