Okay, so I decided to go with making the purple skirt next, got the fabric washed...

And then Cleo decided she wanted to play while I was ironing the fabric. She snagged it with her claws, but I don't think there was any actual breakage... It all seemed fine after I pressed it and wiggled the strands back into place with the tip of a pin.

Next problem! The fabric was supposed to be 54" across. Apparently it shrunk in the wash, because when I folded it, it ended up being 51" across. This means the skirt would be an inch shorter, and have absolutely no wiggle room for hemming. So do I still make the circle skirt, or do I make another half-circle?

On the other hand, I ended up having enough in the length that I could make the waistband in the same color.
