Mod Mini Skirt Project: Purple Textured Polyester


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.

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.

You can read more on my blog Sew Sixties.

Happy sewing!
