I had some fabric left over from a (failed) project and thought I might be able to have a go at the pencil skirt pattern. It took ages to match up the lines from the scraps I had left and I’m still not sure about the stripes but I am reasonably pleased and I will have a go at another. I have already seen a very nice teal ponti online which I think would suit it…
PS oh dear I cropped the pics and they look fine in the thumbnail but a bit wrong in the actual thing. Oh well – just look at the thumbnail!
