I am a long time follower but this is my first time contributing. I have always been fascinated by vintage fashions…the colors…the prints…the materials…Just everything. I envy the people able to wear the styles from way back and have often been told that I was “Born in the wrong era” That being said…This is my project. It is my first drafted Drindl skirt that I made out of a vintage Laura Ashley bedsheet that I thrifted a few weeks ago. I am absolutely in love with the soft little pink flowers and how they just pop against the ivory background. This skirt took me probably a total of 3 – 4 hours overall to finish…I am pretty happy with it..the only thing that I may adjust is the length of the hem…I was hoping it would hit right at the knee but once putting it on it hits me just below the knee. Which is just fine but I am only 5’2″ so at times skirts that are below the knee tend to overwhelm me. The skirt also lacks a little OOMPH! despite all the gathering so I am planning on creating a petticoat to wear underneath of it in the near future The pictures aren’t great its a very overcast day here in Iowa and so the lighting is very off. Any comments, or suggestions or anything of the sort are welcome! Also I would like to thank everyone on here that contributes because you are amazing and a constant source of inspiration to me !
