Description

Yes I know the photos are only by the pool, but I don’t know anyone with a boat to do a nice sea-themed photo shoot, so by the pool it is.
This is a very basic dirndl skirt made from an early 1980s heavy cotton (curtain? drapery?) fabric. The print is based on yacht sails, and there’s a few ‘waves’ at the bottom edge. I was very lucky that the piece of fabric had two repeats of the print so I just had to cut it in half, trim the edges slightly so they were the same length, sew the seams, gather the top, and throw on a waistband. Easy Peasy.

    Fabulous! I love the print (and there could be no better way of using it than the way you did)!

      thanks! when i bought it the person suggested it would make a nice wall hanging, which it would have, but it makes a much better skirt.
