Heeeere we go ...
I made a few solid colors. First up is orange: I made one already from this exact fabric and schmeebot has worn it out! This is the only skirt of the bunch where I chose something specifically for the facing fabric. The others all have facings that came from my huge scrap collection.
And of course she needed a basic black one. Yoke facing (also pocket facing) is leftover from the dinosaur dress.
Then, prints. I love this crazy fabric. I love the orange-y dot fabric with it too, and let a little show at the edges of the pockets, rather than rolling it to the inside. It looks a bit like piping that way.
This is the one schmeebot says she ends up wearing the most! It's made from Ikea home dec fabric.
And I've saved the best for last! This is more Ikea fabric -- the print is a huge dandelion/sparkle thing. I had fun figuring out how to lay out the skirt pieces to get an interesting design. Eventually I will make myself one like this too.
I've also made myself a skirt from another Ikea fabric, and a Sewaholic Alma blouse. And here comes the Christmas/New Years holidays ... and a big box of Ikea fabrics just arrived! However, sewing now has to compete with a new hobby: not one I plan to blog about much, but I may share just one post on it sometime soon.
