So you might be thinking, oh that’s a really nice striped fabric, but actually it isn’t…
I had some cut off’s of white and black gabardine sitting around so I sewed them all together to make a skirt.
Unfortunately no… I cut each piece the same width and was very careful with measuring the seam line, but somehow when I joined them all together at the side seams they didn’t quite match up….
And me being ever so lazy, I decided that ruffles and bright colours will distract the eye from looking at aforementioned mistakes.
Either way, I think it looks pretty good I guess!
