Vintage Sewing

Lucinda Skirt by SewsNBows

June 14, 2013

I thought I’d drop by and show off this lovely fabric I bought a while back! It’s a vintage cotton, salvaged from an estate sale. I love the watercolor floral print. I also love that this fabric is old enough that it was made right here in America. I purchase vintage fabric every chance I get, because my money stays here in the United States, and because American made anything is hard to come by.


The ric-rac is vintage too- the retro packaging was labeled .19 cents!


I used the super awesome Lucinda pattern from BeMyGoth. I can’t say enough good things about the pattern designer! (By the way, there’s a free lace top pattern available for download there!)


I have more photos of my Lucinda Skirt over at my blog, SewsNBows. You’re welcome to drop by any time for a visit!

  1. I have plans to make a skirt very similar to this one! My fabric is also a floral, but much bolder, and more 80’s. Love the ric-rac details and the pockets!

  2. I love the 80’s! What I really love about this skirt ( but didn’t photograph) is that it has a high waist with corset like panels. I’ve been wanting to do an 80s version:)
