41  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / tulips A-line skirt and fall tree A-line skirt on: July 07, 2004 06:14:51 AM
Hi!  This is my first post.  I just wanted to share some applique's I've been doing.  I think they came out well.  The tree was inspired by a friends talk of a tattoo and all the fall catalogues that have started arriving (with my favorite fetish, sweaters)!

The skirt is a vintage Simplicity A-line pattern from the seventies.  For the applique, I iron double sided fusible on the cut out shapes.  Then, I iron that fabric to the skirt and then go over it with my smallest zigzag stitch twice.  It doesn't take too long.  I think the tree took me an hour and a half.  The circles by the tulips are shell buttons and the stems are ric rac.
