 I've been slowly working my way through the fabric I received in December. After the polka dot dress, I made the daisy fabric into a pencil skirt:

I've made two long skirts. First the green:

And then, yesterday, a similar skirt with the peacock fabric, a fabric that deserves a close up:

I had thought I'd wear the skirt with my turquoise silk top with tatted edging around the neck:

But when I put them together, it turned out that the turquoise is too green and they don't look good together:

Hmmm. I sent a series of photos off to my daughter, trying out different tops, and eventually the consensus was that this one works best:

So now I'm set for a trip away for a few days. It's funny how you 'never' go away and then find yourself taking two trips in a month. I'll check in when I get back. 


  1. Great skirts!! :)
    I was thinking you were going to have to make a shirt to match. ;)

    1. It crossed my mind, but I didn’t have suitable fabric on hand.

  2. Decisions, decisions!! Glad you’re sorted though. Enjoy your trip.

  3. Lovely skirts, I hope you enjoy both trips and I am sure you will enjoy wearing your new skirts

  4. Beautiful fabrics and matching edging. Delightful to see tatting on clothes.

  5. Beautiful ensembles 🦋🦋🦋 Hope you had a good trip
