Description

I got some coordinating fabric swatches which I thought were very pretty but they were not big enough to make anything useful from. I thought they’d be pretty as a skirt so I used each swatch to be one quarter of a skirt. Each panel of my skirt was a different colour. I think it turned out very nice.

I made the skirt from a Lutterloh pattern.

    Very nice and a great way to use up fabric scraps. These look like batik fabric – are they?

      Thanks. No the fabric is lycra.
