entry for the Alabama Studio Style contest
Just me, my dog, and my patchwork skirt.
The handsewn patchwork applique on this corduroy skirt as well as the mix-and-match bias binding at the hem were cut from sewing project scraps and upcycled plaid shirts. I found the green corduroy fabric at my fabulous local thrift store.
I drafted the skirt using directions in Cal Patch’s book _ Design-It-Yourself Clothes: Patternmaking Simplified_ .
