Description

My Mum wanted to throw away my Grandma’s linen. However, the fabric was still good, so I thought it might become a nice skirt. I could have ironed it before taking pictures though… Based on a McCall pattern (5430).

    Oh… I like it! You took classy pictures. My mum has a really big old cupboard full of hand-weaved linen. I descend from an old german farmers family. Thank you for inspiration! Das letzte Foto ist ein richtiges Stilleben, dass man sich ins Wohnzimmer hängen könnte! ;)
