Flickr user Crafty Intentions spent five months sewing this intricate, floor-length rainbow skirt, which features 10 tiers of 4″ x 4″ patchwork squares. It’s like Scarlett O’Hara meets Willy Wonka–in the best possible way, of course!

  1. What an accomplishment! I love sewing and fabric and color and just a touch of quilting like in this project. How did you finish the top of the skirt?

  2. You can see photos of the skirt with the model standing (and spinning, and sitting…) if you click on the link just below the photo.

  3. I’d leave a comment on the original page where I found it, but I’m not a member of Craftster ):
    I am in complete awe and in total love with this skirt. While I know I’d never be able to complete something like this, I am very much inspired to make one of my own. I love big, flowy skirts and I love rainbows, what I great combination >3<

  4. I love this skirt and I’m thinking about making one too but going from white to light green to medium green. I saw this originally on craftster and loved it, don’t let them get you down!
    Good Job!!

  5. Like the comment above, I would have placed this comment on the Craftster page if I could.
    Just to say that I can see three things wrong with this skirt so far as some of your family are probably concerned. 1) it’s not a pair of jeans. 2) it was not bought from a high-street chain store. 3) it states that you use your time to do things other than watch the TV.
    Your friend clearly adores the skirt. I hope that your partner does too. I would say it was well worth the effort. Congratulations.

  6. I think you did a beautiful job.
    Just as when we were kids, most people say hurtful things because they are jealous, or they feel a lacking in their own life. You must feel sorry for these people because they will never be able to get out of their own way.
    You, ma’am, are a mover! GREAT JOB on the skirt, it is a ray of sunshine!

  7. EXCELLENT WORK! It looks very beautiful. It attracts me at first sight. I really want to appreciate you for your beautiful skirt. continue your creation. Congratulation!

  8. I just love your skirt and if I could sew I would be making one right now! You could sell your skirt for quite a bit of money Im sure of it. If you sold one for a good amount of profit I bet the persons saying bad things about it would quit saying things. You should summit it to a craft magazine or craft contest. You could also make shorter versions. Anyway I loved it and can’t wait to see what you create next!

  10. Hi I just want you to know that I saw your skirt for the first time on pinterest and I am inspired to try to make one for my self. I think that I will reverse the dark colors with the light since I am rather heavy and I would like to hide my stomach. Thank you for the inspiration.
