Girlie seventies skirt

October 22, 2007

This one is only a slight “but”, I’m starting gently- you know, like when first you look at drawings of spiders, then photos…

My lovely flatmate Alice brought me the fabric back from Japan in August, and it has been sitting on the corner of my desk since then. It has finally made it from a plan to an actual skirt, using this pattern (Style 4167, I think its from the seventies?):

I’m very pleased with myself, not only for squeezing a flippy (albeit short) skirt out of one metre of fabric, but also because the pattern piece for the waistband had gone AWOL, and I redrafted it.
A wee bit more on my blog, as usual.

  1. Ohhh! I love this – what a cute pattern. My name’s Alice, too…perhaps a fondness for patterned 70s skirts comes with the name!
