Want to create a simple skirt in a fun fabric? Then this patternless skirt project is created for you— or someone who appreciates a little bit of non-traditional pattern-making and sewing! That is, creating a skirt based on your own measurements, without a pattern. A relative gave me a pile of Marimekko fabric swatches for Christmas (thank you!) and there was just enough green & blue floral cotton to make a skirt.
I love the vintage look and feel of Marimekko cotton, the skirt has a fun retro vibe and really stands out amongst the many neutral colored garments I own. Have you ever sewn with Marimekko fabric?
Marimekko, well known for its bold patterns and organic designs, has experienced a resurgence in popularity.
