A Seriously Silly Wiggle Skirt!

April 2, 2012



So I’m feeling pretty smitten with my new skirt…

Yet another variation of my trusty McCall’s 5081 pencil skirt pattern, this baby was whipped up in just a couple of hours after I was practically smacked in the face by a flash of inspiration and an uncontrollable desire to own a fishtail frill wiggle skirt made from this sickeningly fabulous printed nylon I picked up in Walthamstow.

For some reason, the print and texture of this fabric reminds me of Carl Douglas’ Kung Fu Fighting… Which I’ve now had stuck in my head for three days…
For more images and details on the sheer wiggliness of this skirt, pop on over to my blog, Stitch Me Softly…



  1. That is so cute, really adorable. You remind me of me in that I have a stash of fabric that everybody else thinks “What?” and I can see all sorts of amazing creations in my head. Bautifully made and beautiful fit.

  2. Love this. The fabric is wonderful and works great with the simple design of the skirt. And the skirt… It fits you perfect. Dynamite!
