Finally a challenge done!

It is a petticoat!

Challenge #13: Under $10

For this challenge I made something absolutely easy and cheap! I bought 60cm of pre-quilted polyester fabric for 2,68€ which at todays rate are $ 3,63.
I then closed the short edges, gathered one long side into a waistband and hemmed the other one.
That's it:

Now that it is done I see, that it would probably have been better to use a wider piece of fabric, but this one will do it's duty to support my future 18th century skirts anyway!

Challenge facts:

A quilted skirt support petticoat
