Day 9 of Me Made May and the sun is out so beachy prints are go! This is the 3rd Saltmarsh Skirt I’ve made, lovely lovely pattern to sew. I love the nice deep pockets too.
I like the casual elegance of this below the knee skirt, and the fabric, oooh the fabric! Its a viscose, possibly ex-designer, from Fabric Godmother.
I don’t think it is really well suited to a skirt, it isn’t terribly hard wearing and it doesn’t like wooden chairs. It is ideal for blouses, but I thought the shade of pink might not suit my face. Its starting to show wear and tear at the back so I will just have to stand up or only sit on bean bags from now on.
I love these metal eyelets!!! Lots of fun, playing with hardware. I used recycled t shirt yarn for the drawstring.
The t-shirt was really nice to sew, very easy, nothing to report here. Apart from how nice it is to wear and that I will be making many more!
