Description

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_ .

corduroy (thrifted)
zipper (upcycled)

    Its great. I like the concept of patchwork on the skirt. The fabrics you’ve chosen all work really well together.
