Description

Got a remnant of this iconic print Kevätjuhla by Miina Äkkijyrkkä for Marimekko. Just enough for a skirt!

based on Burda pattern 8677 but with tweaks – added an inverted pleat for more movement. The print didn’t lend itself to the required bias cut for this particular pattern even if I had had enough.

Material Notes

1.2m of print fabric (1.5m wide), thread, 20cm zip.

    I love this fabric. I tried to look it up online… OMG! No where to be found! My daughter would just eat this up… it would end up in her room (she is super tiny for her age) not on her.
