Simply Spring

Skirt 001  Inspired by the lovely Kate and her tutorial these appeared in 2 hours last night. You have to love that, from half a yard of fabric no less so 2 very cute skirts for around $5. I used 5 inches for the top and 10 inches for the bottom to fit Poppy. The flowers are an Alexander Henry and the pink is a really nice cross weave. I was expecting it to be like a shot cotton, which it isn’t at all but has a gorgeous texture to it. The hem detailing is one of the fancy stitches on my machine that never get used.Skirt 002

I was lucky enough last night to make it into Pip’s book launch (even if it was with both the kidlets who were thankfully pretty well behaved) for Sew La Tea Do, and it is a really lovely book. There are plans – like there needed to be more – of hats and embroidered pillow slips and other lovely things that you expect from the lovely lady herself. (bad blogger who took no photos)

I love the fancy, never used, stitching that you put on the hem Cindy. Two skirts for $5, a bargain to boot.

Love the fancy stitch on the hem - might have to borrow that idea!

Lovely skirts! One of the best things about having a girl when you sew is sewing skirts I reckon!
