Flea Market Fancy Skirt

I know it doesn’t look like much on a hanger but this is my tried and true super simple, super fast draw string skirt. I used New Look 6494 for the pattern and added a 2″ border on the bottom.

For the main skirt piece, I used Flea Market Fancy Eyelet in Grey and for the border, Posie in grey. I thought about appliqueing a big raw edged flower off centre but changed my mind and kept this one simple and formal enough to wear to work.

I’d like to make a patch work skirt as well, perhaps using Granny Squares blocks? I love how these are turning out and completely understand the fasination that’s going on with them right now.

Yesterday was a huge traffic day here at Bending Pins, being featured in Craftsy’s Newsletter gave me a huge boost but many were looking for a tutorial on my Japanese Linen iPad case. Sadly I didn’t have one prepared because I didn’t know it was going to become so popular! I worked on a tutorial all day yesterday but wasn’t able to get it finished. I will endeavor to get one done for next Sunday since it’ll be a long weekend, YAY!!

Almost forgot, I’m linking up with Manic Monday today!

    • I’m sure I’m not the first or last to make a pieced/quilted skirt, I think I remember seeing pieced maxi skirts in the 70’s, I’ll have to try one. Mine is almost finished, will post again Sunday! Thanks for dropping by Mickey!
