I bought this remnant of printed cotton fabric years ago in a charity shop (Cats Protection League in Maidstone, since you ask!). It’s been languishing in my stash ever since. At the beginning of the summer I decided I would finally make myself a new summery skirt. But then other things, like starting a new job (!) got in the way. But now I’ve finally finished my skirt and, although it’s not quite summer any more, I wore it for the first time yesterday. Luckily the rain stayed away and it was quite sunny. I also got lots of very kind compliments! The pattern? Well, I borrowed a waistband from a vintage Simplicity pattern, also in my stash and the rest I’m afraid I just made up as I went along!
