A couple of months ago, when Spring/Summer catalogues were being delivered to our home, I fell in love with some oh so pretty items from Boden - for my little girl. Given that she only wears clothes for two seasons at the most as she's getting bigger by the day the ones from Boden are rather on the pricey side for us (Mummy wears hers much longer...). After a considerable amount of thought I came to the conclusion that I could give it a try and after many many years produce a piece of clothing by myself. And I did!
Proudly presenting.............(hear the drums roll?)................ta-dah!!! The Owl Skirt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'd had the pink fabric for ages, I bought it several years ago thinking I'd have a skirt made for myself. Never got round to it, I'm afraid. It came in perfectly handy for my little project!
There's never a problem with scraps of colourful fabric in my home. I love Liberty Tana Lawn cotton and I have a tiny stash of some ancient Laura Ashley fabric in my box.
After seeing this and this I had plenty of inspiration and, if you don't mind my saying so, I rather like the result of my endeavours. I even put a tiny zig-zag bow at the back of the skirt...
And here you can see the skirt in action : )
