Skirts

This post is going to be short and sweet because the writing sector of my brain isn’t quite cooperating with me at the moment. I have had these 2 vintage bedsheets sitting in my stash for quite a while so I thought today that I would pull them out and get creative with them! The [...]

Hi all and happy Halloween! Here is a circle skirt I made recently to add to my summer wardrobe, They fabric is a hawaiian Rayon/cotton blend, and it’s got lovely airy movement! I was really drawn to the colours and the stormy feel. It’s a little shorter than I wanted, owing to the fact that [...]

Lovely bolt of fabric, unmissable. The Ginger skirt from Colette Patterns is little consumer of fabric. There was not more than to dash. And a little bit of gold and handmade embroidery… More details and pics on Cafekam’s blog. Have a nice week end !

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.

There’s no such thing as too much ric-rac! When Abby from BlueGingerDoll showed me her latest skirt design I knew straightaway it would be right up my alley.  To me, it feels like a casual late-1940′s skirt, but it could be styled for a 1950s or 1960s look quite easily.           [...]

Woot for another successful sew along! My project for the Fall for Cotton sew along was this great gray corduroy skirt c. 1940. I made it to go with this great rayon printed blouse. Both are made from DuBarry 5909. I’m very happy with these two separates. I’m sure they’ll get loads of wear. For [...]
