I had this citrus fabric, which was actually a tablecloth. It’s not really vintage, in fact it was labeled “Charter Club” (Macy’s brand) so it’s pretty recent. But I can’t resist citrus, and I can’t resist $1.99 items at the thrift store.
Also I had this skirt, which is paneled and pintucked and has an interesting drawstring waist in addition to the button front. I call it the Ladybug Skirt, even though the ladybugs are barely visible next to the huge daisies.
I got it last year from an Etsy shop, Call Me Chula. It fits great and I’ve wanted to make more in a similar style.
I ended up just making an 8-panel skirt with a back zip. It turned out pretty well.
Nothing more summery than that!
Next week we’ll take a look at the now quite clean and somewhat organized sewing room.
