Description

So, you may have noticed a theme with my skirts…..50’s style…..I fine the clothes so flattering and feminine and I always feel so pretty when I’m wearing these types of skirts.

Anyway, I made this bold blue skirt for one of my customers (my best customer in fact). It’s made up of two layers:

Blue cotton lining
Blue lace

Both of the pieces where cut into full circles (if you google full circle skirt tutorial, you’ll find loads of them). I did the lining a little shorter than the lace and hemmed it, the lace didn’t need hemming. I pinned both pieces together and added a concealed elasticated waist (no zips, my favourite).

I’m glad to say that my customer my thrilled with the skirt and has received lots of lovely compliments when wearing it…..think I’ll have to make myself one!
