Description

This was made from a red and cream linen skirt which I bought from a charity shop for £2.99!! I used the Lydia pattern as a starting point and then improvised, as the skirt had some lovely overlapping pleats which I wanted to incorporate.

Material Notes

linen, approx 1.3 m

    Thanks so much everyone! I’m still waiting to wear it though, the weather in the UK is horrible at the moment – maybe in the spring sigh
