I have been absent for some time in the sewing community, This year has just proven to be way too busy but :) I am getting back into the swing of things with…. 16 vintage inspired skirts :) I don’t have a picture of every single one of them but I can say the few that I do have I am incredibly proud of. I was contacted by a local shop a few months back to create some vintage inspired skirts for them and to be honest I was so incredibly nervous! I made so many little silly mistakes on my first few that I had to go back and fix I was ready to pull my hair out and give up! I took a deep breath, picked out my stitches and kept on truckin! The end result…16 beautiful skirts that I can be proud of.

I created my gored skirts using Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing pattern and they turned out beautiful!

The fabrics I used were a mixture of vintage and modern :) I created 4 of each style in an A-line, Gored, Drindl, and Pencil and I could not be prouder…I even have a few with lapped zippers! A technique that has often eluded me in the past! For more pictures and details check out my blog at http://frillz24.blogspot.com/

Not the best picture of all of them but it does give you a good general idea of what they all look like!

As always thanks to all of you contributors for being such amazing inspirations!
