Modern Vintage

May 15, 2013

Hello Happy Sewers! I’m here today with my Chardon skirt, a contemporary pattern, made using vintage fabric and trim. I estimate both the fabric and the trim to date from the late 1960’s/early 1970’s.

This was my first experiment with attaching a trimmed border to fabric. I stitched inside the perimeter of the bottom and used a straight line of stitching towards the top. I have no idea whether this is an acceptable means of securing trim, but it gets the job done. Do you have experience with trims? What is your preferred method for applying it? I’d love to hear your suggestions. There are more pictures and details on my blog. See you soon!





  1. Holy cow! I have yards and yards of that fabric that we inherited from grandma! Now I know it is for more than curtains…
