Description

When I saw this retro-y fabric I decided that it was just begging to be made into a Ginger skirt for spring!
This was my second time sewing this pattern… and this time I made my own piping to add to the skirt to match (something I’d never done before), which was actually pretty fun and not terribly difficult to do.

Head on over to this blog post to read more about it and to see a few more ways that I styled it.

    Hahaaa, I just posted a Coletterie project as well. I thought the skirt looked familiar.

    I usually shy away from flower prints but this one is really nice.

    I might have to try that pattern as well.

      Haha, I usually shy away from typical floral prints too… but I thought that this one was kind of fun when I saw it!
