I haven't been able to find a skirt that I like in the shops - so I decided I would have a go at making one.
I didn't have a pattern so I used the skirts I already had as a basis for drawing up a pattern.
I bought some cheap cotton furnishing fabric - £1 per metre!! Something bold and jolly (nice curtains!)
It consists of 6 tapered panels and a side zip - very basic but a good fit and the right length.
As I was coming downstairs to show the finished article off to the rest of the family - I suddenly had an image in my head from my favourite film of the von Trapp children in their 'playsuits' made from curtain fabric.
