Flower power sheet to wraparound skirt

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.

About the author: I accidentally ‘discovered’ sewing at the end of 2009 and I’ve been hooked ever since! I’m endlessly inspired by the unique details seen in vintage sewing patterns, the innovative designs offered up by independent pattern companies, and the abundance of beautiful creations by fellow bloggers. My blog – A Stitching Odyssey – started life as a way of documenting my progress, but it’s so much more than that now. I also share tips and tutorials along the way, as well as honest reviews and accounts of my experiences.

    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.

    Yellow is such a great colour this season and seams to be everywhere. Beautiful skirt, the print is so fun.
