Skirting the Issue

I love the skirted table that Erika had made for her daughter's second birthday. The fabric is very inexpensive, and she chose red so that she could use it again on holidays (how festive will it be on the 4th of July?).

Our dining room table's surface takes a beating when we have guests and it would be nice to have a floor-length cloth to use when we pull the chairs away. Ana Spiro has a lovely ticking-stripe cloth on her desk.

A box pleat would be pretty, too, and that might be a little more in-line with my sewing abilities. Now, where's my measuring tape?

It's so funny you posted this. I pinned Erika's tablecloth as a possible inspiration for a DIY for our dining room table. Love the idea of the skirt.

These are great ideas and I am looking to do something like this for my desk in my office.

You could definitely make one. I made one for our round dining room table (haven't posted it on the blog yet) with overlapping panels from a drop cloth. You basically just sew them on in a line.

And you can change them out for the different seasons, perfect!
