There is something wonderful about creating a new garment from leftover fabric pieces.
This quilting cotton has had a few different incarnations. It was a gifted apron, a vintage reproduction dress, and now a lovely little skirt. I am not sure that there is enough remaining to manage one more project, but I am going to hang onto the bits just in case - I believe that four items from one length of yardage would be a record for me.
This pattern was originally chosen for last year’s Sew Weekly craziness. I cut it out along with this skirt some weekend last year, but never got any further than cutting and gathering the needed notions.
As a rather cathartic start to the New Year, I am trying to clean up the sewing room. And that includes finishing some of those unfinished projects!
I love the welt pockets. This time around, I did not make much use of them as a design feature, but that is definitely a possibility if I make this up again.
