I finally dragged the boy to our new IKEA store and as well as some delicious meatballs and some uneccessary homeware tat i also picked up this awesome printed fabric.
I decided to make the Linda again cos it is such a simple pattern that creates a really swooshy cool skirt. I didn’t line this one so it literally took about an hour from start to finish.
I put an in seam pocket in this one and also made the waistband about 2cm taller.
It doesn’t have quite as much movement as the green version as the IKEA fabric is slightly thick and stiff ( I REALLY wish IKEA would sell all their awesome prints on normal cotton fabric instead of the thicker upholstery type fabric)
