Description

For the most recent Sew Weekly challenge, I made a nautical-inspired skirt from Simplicity 3462 from the early 1960’s.

The skirt is made of a navy-blue medium-lightweight cotton drill. The burgundy buttons down the centre front are mis-matched – the only things they have in common is colour and size.

Since it was too dark and cold to venture down to the marina to get nautical-inspired photos with actual real-life boats, I decided to channel those childhood bathtime adventures when you got to captain a toy tug-boat in the bath, steering it through mountains and iceburgs of bubble-bath bubbles. Hence the rubber duckie and the bathtub. (And conveniently, the shower curtains match the colour scheme of the skirt!).

    What a cute skirt! I really like the nautical colours, and it goes so well with the stripey top. Pockets are essential for a housewife skirt! Very nice!
