I've always been a girlie girl. I appreciate a ruffle here and there and I surely appreciate skirted sofas, tables, sinks and cabinets. And good news... we are seeing more and more of this lately in home decor. Recently, I sewed up a skirt for our pedestal sink in our guest bathroom, and I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome.
If you'd like to sew a skirt for your sink, simply measure the circumference around it, and add one and half that amount to account for pleats. I used a pleater foot which I highly recommend, to make the pleats. But you can also certainly place a piece of string across the length be pleated, then zig zag stitch wide enough over it so you don't catch the string. Then simply pull the string to gather. I used double stick velcro to adhere to the sink. Of course, I hemmed all edges. I hemmed the top at a wider hem than the rest because it is visible at the top. This couldn't have been an easier project to make.
