Mod Mini Skirt Project: Purple Textured Polyester

September 27, 2011

I made this purple mini skirt out of a vintage polyester that I found online. The texture kind of reminds me of stucco. I love all the different textures on old polyester fabrics. Seems now days most polyesters you can buy don’t have much in the way of texture.

The look that I emulated from Simplicity

I also made this skirt with the idea of emulating a picture I found in one of my old Simplicity pattern counter catalogs. I had the striped shirt but all I needed was the skirt! I’m really pleased with the result and like the idea of pairing stripes with solids. Will need to make more solids in the future.

Happy sewing!
