I expect you have picked up on my love of sewing clothes for my girl but, of course, there are only so many she can realistically wear. It's been on my mind to try selling some for some time and now the overlocker's up and running, and there's a fairly healthy supply of vintage goodies in the stash, I've finally plucked up the courage and added some skirts to the shop.
These limited edition skirts are all made from 1950s fabric and two from wonderful barkcloth. If you're not familiar with this, barkcloth is the most beautiful medium weight textural cotton, mostly associated with the 1940s through 1960s and commonly used in curtains and other home furnishings. I love using it for clothing because, aside from the beautiful prints, the cloth is just so interesting and tactile.
But holiday time now means a shift in the creativity that happens around here. Hmm, I think we shall begin with decorating the Easter tree!
Have a lovely week everyone x
