It is made from tie-dyed sari fabric I picked up in India over five years ago. At one point the fabric was used as curtains in my tiny NYC apartment. It got a little sunbleached there but I could never part with the fabric. I think because I have such fond memories of that trip to India and not a lot of physical "things" to show for it.
I think it made a perfect little bubble skirt and now the memory lives on!
