this red skirt is NOT my skirt..this is the skirt in the book I bought that has the pattern to make said skirt...Here is my birthday skirt. I would have loved to find red jersey or even a few big red tees, alas I am using brown and blue (and red fabric paint) This is from the Alabama Stitch book. I love the projects in the book. Evereything is hand sewn and rustic/crafty style which I love. Jersey is a bit of a pain to work with but I am learning. The smaller projects in the book can be made using teeshirts.
This panel wil be redone because I did not double the thread. Note that I left the ties on the outside. I love that. The stitches are supposed to be that big btw. Also, I really love the look of the reverse applique all the way up the panels but I sort of want to wait and sew the skirt together first. This is the kind of project that you can wear as a "work in progress". the binding at the top is fold over elastic. On my fave craft blogs they have been talking about "foe" a lot.It comes in many colors and is easy to use.
