I’ve created yet another summer skirt. A quilt skirt with lots of different vintage fabrics that I like.
I found all of these fabrics at my mom’s house, and I cut all the squares all by my self this time. Mom has helped me before when I did a blanket (that is not finished yet). But this time cutting felt so easy, and fun. After I made big squares I continued and made lots and lots of small ones for… something else. I don’t know yet but I have a lot of pictures. I’ll post them soon to let you see how beautiful I can cut now! hehe.
The skirt squares are rather big, and I’m so glad I made them big or this would’ve taken for ever to make. They are 20 cm x 20 cm and that was perfect for me.
Mom has helped with the shaping around my waist, but other than that I made it myself and I’m very proud. I’m learning! I’m having fun! I choose fabrics and colours that I liked and thought would look okay together, I found the buttons and then made slits on both sides for easy walking!
Didn’t I say I would make the world a more colourful place huh? ;-)
The backside is different. All different fabrics, take a look:
My skirt is totally inspired by fashion designer Tricia Royal. She is one girl who is not afraid to use colours, to mix them or dress up in them. I love colours too, but I don’t really know what I’m doing clothe-wise. I know very little about fashion, but I’m finding out what I like and don’t like all the time now. And that is all I need to know.
I love my quilt skirt, it makes me happy to wear it.
Please let me know what you think! :-)
Have a great day, now I’m off to a birthday party!
