Here’s my take on the A-Plus A-Line skirt. Having no money at all but wanting to make it a bit special I searched through all my fabrics and bits and pieces to see what I could cobble together. I found some black cotton twill and some flowery blue cotton and decided to get stitching.
I’d decided I wanted a birdie theme (don’t know why, it just seemed like a good idea at the time) so I got my bleach out and painted some birds and swirls on the front and back piece. I didn’t have a suitable zip so I used some pretty flower buttons I had instead and made some buttonhole stitched loops. To add a bit of sparkle I topstitched with a metallic turquoise thread. I’m wearing it today!
