I made this skirt for a couple of reasons. First, I loved the fabric and wanted to use it as a long skirt because the panel/border is so long. I haven’t worn an everyday long skirt since they were called maxi-dresses. Isn’t the fabric absolutely stunning? It’s at the Bungalow, in store and online here, along with several other designs with panels that can be long or short. Note the photo of the fabric shows only the poppies, but in fact the piece includes a sunset scene at the top; it really depicts a field of poppies. The colors are vibrant and happy. Following will be posts with some tips I learned in the process. It was a pattern marked “Learn to Sew”. Who knew I could learn some things from such a pattern, as I’ve been sewing for YEARS. I encourage experienced sewists to try such a pattern, as techniques have been perfected over the years.
