This quilting cotton fabric was easy to fall in love with. When I saw it, had to have it and a cute skirt immediately came to mind. In steps the hand sewn Simplicity 1717 skirt. This fabric is cra-cra busy and It’s all good. It reminds me of the semi-tropical climate where I live. Check out the little hula girls.
If I were younger and smaller I would have made this knee length. You may read the pattern review that I wrote here. This is my third hand sewn garment. I had to pull out a new needle because the one I used for the other two items got dull and I noticed the finish was removed. Can you say, “Change needles for each project, dear sewist”?
