Vanessa skirt reversed

Added Mar 10, 2008

Melbourne, Austr...






When I was cutting out this skirt, I had the fabric right side down instead of right side up by accident, so the pleats are on the opposite side.  I also moved the zip to the back.  Overall, I’m not sure that I’m happy with the fabric choice – it seemed like a good idea at the time. Hmmm…

Material Notes

Tangarine coloured gaberdine that dates back to the 70s and a Japanese cotton craft print for the pleated underlay.

    I agree with the other ladies: there sure is nothing wrong to be seen about your fabric choice. I really like your skirt!

    What don’t you like about the fabric? I think your skirt looks very nice. Love the color. Can’t wait for spring to come here.
