The last thing I made was this bubble skirt for Isabelle. I used this awesome bubble skirt tutorial by An of Straightgrain. I discovered Straightgrain a while back and have fallen in love with it and Belgium style in general. (You may remember me raving about it here.)
Do you recognise the fabric I used? The gorgeous poppies fabric is genuine Liberty of London fabric that I received from Clare of Green Valley Crafts as part of scrap bag swap. I decided to go patterned on patterned with contrasting fabric for the waistband (also received in the swap), and I used some blue and white seersucker for the lining that I had in my stash.
I love this skirt. It was simple easy to make, although I was a bit lazy with my ruffles.But I don’t think you can really tell … especially when your dazzled by Isabelle’s beauty… am I right?
The photo above is a bit random – but I couldn’t resist sharing with you that I just used up this reel of 1000m of white thread ; that’s 1km people! I purchased this reel just before the last KCW, so about 6 months ago. Can you understand why I’m just a bit proud of this achievement?
