Skull Kasia

Added Oct 8, 2010

Kent, Ohio, Unit...






I bought this fabulous cotton skull fabric a few months ago and immediately knew it wanted to be a unique skirt! I love this fabric, and the Kasia pattern is perfect for it. I hand-stitched the buttonholes and made covered buttons to match the contrast fabric on the hips. This project was challenging without being overly frustrating. I loved making this skirt almost as much as I love wearing it!

Material Notes

Cotton— skull fabric
Satin— red accent fabric (also used on the covered buttons)
