I made this! (well, I made it a while ago, but I just recently got around to photographing and blogging it...)

Back view:

Closer in (to admire the fabric)

And the pattern (which was a charity shop find, hurrah!)


I made it using a tablecloth I bought from a market stall. I didn't have quite enough fabric, so the side seams have a slight tulip shape to them. Also, I decided I couldn't be doing with making a nice curved hem which somehow worked with the straight lines on that band of the print, so I went for a handkerchief hem and left it at that (you can hardly even see that it is one, so I think I made the right decision there...)

I hope you like it!

What a find!  I'm always on the look out for table clothes and such, you scored on that one.  (and on the pattern)  It all looks professional.

That's adorable! I love the print and I think the tulip shape makes it even prettier!
