Natalie’s Skirt

My friend Natalie shares my love of colourful floating skirts and always compliments me on my home made creations. So for her Birthday this year, I decided to finally make her her own exclusive item ;)! We spent a delightful afternoon fabric shopping together and eventually settled on a beautifulĀ cotton from John Lewis.

Sewing for someone else was a new experience for me. Thankfully, for a ‘circle’ style skirt, all one needs to get the fit right is a waist measurement and an approximate length. Natalie’s skirt has an invisible zip that can be worn either at the back or on the side. I also decided to surprise her by using the leftover bits of fabric to make a little matching bag.

I think she looks lovely in it!
