I wanted an owl skirt, but wanted it to be more grown up with a bit of kitch. I used an a-line skirt pattern by New Look #6410. I added pockets from an original vintage 1960’s pattern by Butterick #5490. I drew out the scroll patterns and the owl silhouette onto paper, then traced it onto fusible web, cut it out, ironed on and then stitched with the sewing machine. Hand hemmed. Super cute!
The bright green cotton fabric was purchased at a thrift store for .99 cents! The grey cotton in the applique was a scrap, and the grey seam binding had been laying around from a project never accomplished.
