part two

the second project i finished last week was a skirt for little O, i opted for a more muted colour scheme, but then that means she can get away with wearing it now (with a pair of tights) instead of having to wait for spring to arrive 


i'd had this one planned in my head for a while, i just love the Denyse Schmidt, wallflower fabric (from here) which i teamed with some Kaffe Fassett shot cotton (sorry can't remember what the colour was called but i got it from here) it's ever so soft, i'd love to make myself something to wear with it 


i added a little lace & ribbon to make the pockets, it's had the seal of approval, as she chose to wear it at the weekend


back with more sewing soon

  2. That is beautiful and I love the colours you have put together - almost like an apron skirt.

  3. That is so pretty, and the colours are soft and lovely. I have some of the Hope Valley awaiting attention and I am itching to sew after many many months.

    Really like the detail on the pockets, I'm not surprised your daughter has given it the seal of approval!

  9. This is so cute! I agree, the Denise Schmidt is one of my favorites! I've been holding onto a scrap of it for a loooooong time now! I'm waiting for just the right project.

  10. Good grief I love those Hope Valley fabrics - I'm using them in a quilt top at the moment, but this is such a great use of that pretty wallflower pattern. Love it. I have some of the Kaffe Fassett shot cotton too - it looks like the one that's called Sludge (maybe why you forgot the name...!).
