Sew Serendipity Skirt

Finally I have manage to do some sewing for me! I have had this skirt on my to make list for a couple of years, since I got this gorgeous book.

 I have finally made it (with my Mum's machine since mine is broken).

I used various small bits of fabric, including a couple of fairtrade organic cotton remnants that I got from this great shop. The pictures are awful, I had to tuck in my wooly jumper, it was freezing - I wouldn't wear it like this... And my legs really are luminous white!

I made a medium and graded the waist up to between a medium and large but it has come up a bit big so think I should have stuck with the medium! I am not sure the fabrics really work together, or if we will ever get warm enough weather to wear it, but I enjoyed making it and I will probably make it again at some point with patterned fabric like the picture on the front of the book.

Linking to some of these fab linky parties!


  1. I think it looks really sweet - love the frills and the pocket!

  2. I actually like the combination of fabrics Alison! Hope the weather warms up for you soon so you can wear it! So nice when you get to make something for yourself - you should wear it with pride!

    Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
    Hope you have a fabulous week!

  3. I am visiting you from Sew Chatty. The fabrics look great together. You did an awesome job. See my mom's machine in my recent post about teaching children to sew:

  4. I love these fabrics together, and you could wear it with tights if it doesn't get warm enough! (I'm wearing tights today!).

  5. Cute skirt! Nice colors!

  6. The skirt is lovely and I think the colours of the fabric go well together.

  7. Your skirt came out great. Thanks so much for sharing with Wednesday's Adorned From Above Blog Hop. We can't wait to see what you have for us this week. The party starts at 8:00PM tonight.
