I love the fabric! There are stickmen, drawn cats, houses and more on it. yep. Awesome. I had to have it.
I used a slef-drafted pattern I had used before, but added the pockets and made the skirt a little shorter. I got to use some scraps from a dress for the pockets and I topstitched my seams. They are purple.
The skirt even survived some forest adventures like tree climbing and crossing streams on fallen trees :) It got a bit wrinkly though, but i don’t tend to bring my iron to the forest, so it’s visible in the pictures.
One of the most beloved American designers passed last night. We look back at a few of his designs.
