I ran this skirt up yesterday, using some old gingham and Gertie'sgathered skirt instructions.
Seriously people, if you have 3 hours and 2m fabric laying around you can make this too. It's the baked beans on toast of the sewing world.
I lined this skirt with some plain white cotton because it was too light to wear on its own. It's ended up with a nice weight and is still very soft. I'm really pleased with it.
I decided to wear it out today with my handmade top and a bonnet style hat I found at a flea market last year. My butterfly brooch, which you can't see to well here, got an outing too. I've been all about the brooches recently. They're great for dressing up an outfit.
We went out to a friend's bbq and had a great time drinking wine in the sunshine and setting fire to things.
Meg came to see me while I was taking the photos. She's spent the day hunting big game like spiders and butterflies and is now dreaming deeply on the sofa.
