Skirts, Skirts and More Skirts.

Oh I do love to ponce about the studio in my new skirt.
My new cushion range.
 After a flurry of cushion making last week, I seem to have gone into a skirt making frenzy this week.

Looking through the pile of rags in the wardrobe that were my winter skirts, I knew it was time for serious action.

Inspired by CurlyPops 'Make It In May' Skirt Sew-Along, I got busy.

This one I am entering in the Thea & Sami Merry Month of Creativity. I bought this gorgeous piece of organic linen from Thea a few years ago. I made myself a lovely skirt, but still had some left over. As said skirt was getting a bit old and tatty, as favourite garments are destined to become, I made a new one.

The pattern is, once again, the Wrap skirt from Nicole Mallalieu's fabulous book, You Sew Girl. I was planning to use the A-line pattern, but the fabric is so lovely and drapey, it was screaming out to be made into a wrap.

I'm working on an A-line now. Well I will get back to it when I finish blogging.

I seem to be on a bit of a do-it-in-denim frenzy too!


  1. Ooh... I loves me a bit of denim! ...and that Thea and Sami print is just divine. And gosh, what a lovely skirt design!

    You clever thing, you.

  2. Oh I just LOVE this - I think I need to make one too. I loved the one featured with Ms Pops too
