I had this fabric in my cupboard for more than ten years. I think it is a kind of curtain fabric, it has a woven yellow/white pattern. Back then I bought it on a flea market for 50 BFR (no euro’s yet) approx. 1 euro.
I allways knew I wanted to use it for a skirt, but as this was a remnant I never had enough for the patterns I chose. The pattern I used is from Knip mode december 2011, it’s a simple a line skirt with two front seams and a zipper in the side seam.
After washing the fabric it was a bit to smal for my skirt. So I decided to make the skirt shorter . A normal hem would have made the skirt too short for me, instead I overlocked the hemline with yellow-fosforent yarn, and sewed on a “gold” ribbon so that you still can see a little bit of the yellow stiches.
I think it looks nice with my “heart” top, but it’s a skirt I can wear with many colours, just the skirt I needed for this summer!
cotton (linen) fabric, zipper, “gold” trimming, fosforent yellow yarn.
