It is thick and warm; perfect winter skirt material. I lined it and I bought this ribbon in the summer out of a a little basket for 20p on the market to trim the edge.
Pattern wise I am really getting into this drawing-around-your-best-fit-item system that I used for Little M's trousers. I got my best fitting skirt, drew around it with a seam allowance, marked on two front darts and cut away. I love top stitching, it makes people say, "where did you get that skirt?" rather than "did you make that skirt?"
Got my blacks and blues a bit jumbled there but it is so comfortable.
Oh the garden, brown bits and dead bits and places where the chickens have been scratching around. Maybe I should put some wellies on and get out there before it turns arctic.....
Thanks for looking. Jo x
