… in my beautiful, my beautiful ballooooooon!
Hi! Long time lurker, finally contributing.
This is my version of vintage Simplicity 7395 (short skirt) dated 1976, gifted to me (along with numerous other 70s gems) by a very dear friend.
I adore how this turned out and who doesn’t love the idea of a hot air balloon print skirt??
This was a super simple and quick make – there are no closures like zips or buttons to deal with being an easy-to-wear back wrap skirt.
I did not need to make any alterations to this one, it fit right out of the envelope, which NEVER happens.
I used a modern Japanese cotton poplin in a 1950′s vintage print – who doesn’t like to mix decades??
If you’d like to pop over to my blog you can get more details there. I have a few more projects to share, can’t wait to join such a gifted and generous community of sewers!
