Taking those pictures for inspiration, I started sewing scraps of fabric together to create my very own patchwork skirt. And I must say, "I LOVE it!" Someday I will recreate the shirt also. =)

I love this. The blue toile fabric is my favorite.ReplyDelete
I love the skirt! And it looks super cute with those cowgirl boots! This is a great idea for using fabric scraps up. ;)ReplyDelete
Good job, Its super cute! And I LOVE those boots! :)ReplyDelete
Oh oh oh oh!!!! So THAT'S what I can do with all those dreamy fabrics I've saved up!!! I'd only thought of a patchwork *quilt*....ReplyDelete
So often, when I was first beginning to sew, I'd make a garment out of a LOOOOOOvely fabric, and it would flop. Ugh. But, being rather arithmetic-shy, I'd buy a bit too much (yay!)...and now have lots of little end pieces stashed away...betcha know what will be my next sewing project!!
They are mostly earthy, dreamy romantic prints with roses! :)
I think I'll add a ruffle to mine, and make the pieces form somewhat of a gored shape--being "hippy" :)I can't wear many waistline gathers---and maybe try to recreate the blouse in the drawing!
Your outfit is so fun....what with the smart polo shirt and the whimsical skirt and snazzy boots! Everything goes!
Thankyou SO much for the inspiration!!!!! :D
Kathleen - Oh! Your stash sounds dreamy! Do try and make your own patchwork skirt. And do want to know a secret? =) I use to think that "someday" I will use my mountain of scraps for quilts too. But after 4 years of sewing clothing, and 12 or so years of sewing I never got around to starting that quilt. =)
This skirt is fantastic! Love that blue and white fabric on your RH side.ReplyDelete
