Bright and Happy Skirt

When I saw this bold retro print I instantly knew I wanted to make this skirt with it!

It’s actually a canvas furnishing fabric. I adore the print and warm colors are definitely my style.

Fitting notes: Excellent fit. Thats why I use this pattern so often. Sewing is so easy when there are no fit issues!

Anything you would change? I did make an effort to get my favorite flower in the center of the skirt. Then I regret having the flower smack bang in the middle of the skirt. But now I have changed my mind again and I like it there.

Material Notes

Pattern: Simplicity 2451

Notions: 25cm red invisable zip $1 from The Remnant Warehouse

Time to complete: 3 hrs? But thats a wild guess.

Amount of times worn: None yet. It’s been cold…
