Flower power sheet to wraparound skirt

May 7, 2013

When I’ve posted on We Sew Retro before, it’s been about things I’ve made using a vintage pattern. Today though, it’s all about a 60s or 70s flower power sheet I came across a while back. It’s been sitting patiently in my stash waiting for the perfect pattern to come along and sweep it off its proverbial feet. Thank goodness  Tilly’s Miette Skirt came along, because these two were made for each other!

Despite being modern, Tilly’s pattern definitely has a retro vibe to it, especially if you choose your fabric wisely. Best of all, this pattern is an absolute breeze to make…not a zip or button in sight, just easy wraparound ties!

I particularly love how happy this skirt makes me feel and the bright yellow flowers are far enough away from my face not to wash me out.

I’ll leave you with a couple more photos, but there’s more information (as well as an important sewing lesson) over at my blog – A Stitching Odyssey.

  1. Your skirt is delightful. The floral print and color are so lovely. You look fantastic in this little number, and your sandals are an A+ too.
