Description

This fabric was in a bag of fabric scraps I bought at a vintage fabric fair. I didn’t really like it at first, it’s flannelette, so I thought it was a bit too pyjama-like. The piece wasn’t all that big, so I was trying to think of what I even could do with it. Eventually I realised there was just enough fabric for a mini skirt, and that the print would work really well, being of the right era (it’s from about the early 70s). I drafted the pattern myself, making a basic skirt block. The front was a bit too sloped, so I needed to trim it in to fit, but the drafting wasn’t too difficult.
It’s fairly warm, so it works well for the cooler months, and the colours are nice and light to counter the dreariness of winter.
