Bullseye!

I purchased this fabric years and years ago, always intending to make a skirt from it. I don’t think I really thought about the purchase much. The colours aren’t exactly what I would normally wear and the fabric design, well, I feel like I’m a moving target!

Regardless, this yard of fabric is no longer in my stash and is now technically a wearable item. It is also comfortable and should be easy to care for.

I used my Collette Meringue pattern, minus the scallops, as I find this such a well fitting skirt. The fabric is an old Anna Maria Horner home dec fabric and I squeezed this skirt from just one yard of fabric, which normally would be plenty for a skirt, but the fabric matching proved quite challenging. I’ve sewn a very scant hem to allow this length. I’m completely obsessed with my invisible hem foot on my machine these days. Up until recently it always looked too tricky to use, but really it just takes a few minutes with your sewing machine manual to figure out, and the results are amazing and super fast.

I hope you are enjoying a little stash busting. My stash is currently maturing in my cupboard, waiting for the right time to crack into it. It’s good to see a little progress is being made though.

Happy Sewing!
