Description

I dreamed of this skirt- could see it in my imagination way before I actually created it. I used for the white top part a simple “A” skirt pattern. I found an image of the “Pierot” baby Sasha doll created by Sasha Morgethal on the net, added the flowers which mirror the floral design of the skirt by Photoshop and then printed it on a ironable sheet.

Material Notes

Stiff white drill (?)cotton
Floral fabric- I think it’s cotton with some elastic fabric.
Printable sheet to iron on fabric
Black and white ribbon

Difficulty

Novice

Burda design- Don’t remember which pattern, for I used it so often..

    Mimeli – this is fab, the skirt is so simple but you made it exciting and unique by using artistic licence. I really love it – Thumb’s up girl :)

    If your in the UK – Tesco’s do transfer paper (easy to use with good results) and you can use it through an injet printer – as Mimeli said make sure you MIRROR IMAGE on the printer menu.

    Thanks! I used a local(Israeli) brand called “Copybar” for InkJet printers. It was much easier then I feared;-). One thing you should keep in mind is that the image will be ironed mirored..meaning. if you choose some text, you’ll need to flip it..otherwhise it ’ll come out in mirror skript. I would print the image on a regular paper for a test run before using the “real thing” Good luck!

    Great job, mimeli! I have had ideas about transferring images to fabric too, so I would be really interested in finding out which iron-on transfer paper you used. Was it easy to use? Can you use any type of printer?
