Pillowcase into Skirt and...

I was given these 2 pillow shams with the desire for them to be upcycled into something new.

I began by disassembling them...

Each pillow shaw yielded 3 distinctive pieces as well as an additional strip that I will probably re-introduce next week.

With the fabric taken from the back of each pillow sham, I cut out the front and back of an a-line skirt.

I stitched the front and back together at the sides.

When it was done, I felt like it was missing something so I decided to add a little bit of lace trim around the bottom, just enough to peek out.

I stitched it on...

After adding elastic to the waistband (forgot to take a picture of that) it was all done.

Didn't it turn out so cute?  Any suggestions on what I could have done differently?  Pros or cons, let me know.
