I planned to make a circle skirt using Casey's vintage tutorial, and correspondingly made my first on-line fabric purchase! I went to Gone to Earth looking for fabric (and also a copy of Collete's Oolong -clearly even contemplating an easy project has made my more ambitious again!) and picked up some lovely Amy Butler fabric -I really enjoy a big bright pattern, and as my friends know I am very partial to blues and turquoise!
Sadly, being a chump of the highest order I didn't order enough fabric to make the circle skirt (I really don't know what's wrong with me sometimes!) I am half a metre too short. FAIL. So, I decided to use one of my existing patterns to make a slightly less full skirt out of my 2 metres.
Take two-now I am working with Style 1025, a vintage skirt pattern that my lovely mummy gave me when I first got my sewing machine. It's very simple, just a 2 piece flared skirt cut on the bias. No frills, so hopefully no spills (I know I know, famous last words-this hassle free project has already become slightly over drama filled!)
