Again this project was inspired by this nautical top that I bought. This skirt was very simple to make.
It is definitely more suitable for the summer, but I had it in mind when I bought the top and then saw this lace on sale and thought it would make a white skirt a bit more interesting.
Just a lot of rectangles really – thick elasticated waistband, I gathered the lace and cotton together. French seams on both layers and I sewed down the seam on the lace so you could see the seam as a neat detail. The cotton is slightly longer than the lace and the lace is hemmed with bias binding made using Colette’s tip http://www.coletterie.com/tutorials-tips-tricks/continuous-bias-tape-tutorial which I was so impressed with – it makes so much from so little fabric!!
Top stitched in yellow thread to make it even more summery
Lovely soft cotton and lace (cream)
The style is cool and sporty beach wear that can be worn anywhere!
