Circle Skirts to brighten February

Here in the North West of the United Kingdom it is grey and wet and windy. Actually that’s pretty much how it is all over the UK right now, I’m grateful we have at least escaped the dreadful flooding that is happening in the south.
In an attempt to counteract the greyness and lift my spirits while waiting for Spring, and inspired by Marie’s #vintagepledge project, I’ve stitched up two circle skirts this week.

Both skirts were made using a vintage Maudella pattern that I found at our local Vintage Village.
The first using quilting cotton, one of my favourite prints by Laura Gunn.
The second skirt is made from a wool fabric I’ve had for some time.

This skirt pattern is, I can tell going to be one of my most used vintage patterns. I had already used it along with the bodice of another of my favourite vintage patterns to make a dress last month. Well worth the £1 or so I spent on it.

    Such simple staples that I’m sure you’ll get a lot of wear out of.
