Blue Scribbly Half-Circle Skirt

I bought this fabric in the quilting section in Spotlight, which is where I go first when I am looking for beautiful patterned cottons. It reminds me of Scandanavian design from the 60s.

I wanted a long skirt, because as I get older (and wiser) my preference for longer hemlines has taken over. Although I have always loved long hemlines, I have been guilty in the past of "rolling" the waistband of my school skirt from years 7 to 10!

The cotton tends to crease a lot, although that's not a bad thing necessarily. In fact, it sort of accentuates the print.

  2. Hi Ruby, I love your skirt! The fabric is great, it kind of reminds me of dandelion seeds! I've got big plans to get on with some sewing myself this summer but I'm not very good at it so I'll need lots of practice first!

    The flowers on my blog were bluebells I think! They're everywhere at the moment and they're so beautiful!
