New Skirt


My titles are so imaginative don't you think? Anyway, in my rush to show this skirt I couldn't wait for a good light or my husband to take the photos so you will have to apply some imagination. This is a simple A-line skirt (so therefore not nearly so unflattering as it appears on the ill-fitting hangar). I used a Betsy Ross pattern, which was so lovely to use.

No rustling of tissue paper, the patterns are printed on proper paper and comes with a helpful step by step instruction booklet.


I found the Harris Tweed on-line here. The colours are gorgeous and the fabric is beautifully soft. I may have to treat myself to some more while their special offer continues. The pale fabric was perfect for embellishing and although I did orginally plan some more graphic embroidery I lost my nerve and decided to keep it simple with some circles and buttons.

I love the embroidered embellishments; it's such a great way to personalize your sewing, and thanks for the Harris tweed link (I think). :-)

Your skirt is beautiful, I love the colour and your embroidery so much! Especially the added buttons gives it such a charming extra touch. Is it to match your Salina?
There must be really a united spirit here in blogland,I have just embroidered a cushion with such a running stitch and was thinking about circles and buttons, but for resting the head on a cushion I decided for flowers and no buttons. This stitches are so easy to make for me and so many, many thanks for the inspiration to brighten up also a skirt. I wish my sewing would be good enough to do also clothes, yours always look so tempting. Thanks also for the great links, may I ask you how much metres I need for a skirt?
