So I havn't posted in aaages (probably since last time i was on study leave!)
But I love this little skirt I made so thought I'd share!!

It happened like this: I was rifling through my mum's fabric cupboard and found a bag full of some of her old clothes and some of mime from when I was little, I immediately pounced on anything with cute fabric and here is one of the results!

original pinafore/dress...

becomes a skirt...

and an outfit shot!

There it is! Any comments etc. are muchly loved! xxx

It looks great - I'm inspired, as I have a couple of really cute dresses from when I was little that I somehow can't bear to part with, but are pointlessly languishing in the wardrobe, now I can give them a new purpose in life and not just keep hoarding them pointlessly! Thank you Smiley

This is gorgeous!

I really want to make a skirt in this style from some material that i have. I've been searching for a similar pattern online but haven't been able to find one Sad

Does anyone know what this style of skirt might be called?

TIA!  Grin
