Bird Seed Skirt

in 1950s

I have oodles of vintage patterns for this style of skirt, but they are all just big squares of tissue paper so I opted just to make up my own pattern. I cut out three panels of fabric, stitched up the seams, and gathered the waist. Easy and fast and oh so cute!

Stephanie: Your skirt looks great! I love the bit of flair around the hem. I had a tough time deciding on what style of skirt to make. I laid out tons of pattern pieces, but everything ended up with birds going the wrong direction!
Lil: Its my belt from my Pink Dress. I can’t believe how perfectly it worked out.

That skirt is gorgeous! I made a skirt for my friend out of the yellow Alexander henry Bird Seed print, but your skirt design is nicer.
