More Garden-Themed Skirts

Here’s a quick project I sewed up right before the madness hit and I went into demolition mode on the sewing room.

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.
The citrus fabric seemed perfect for this kind of skirt, but it turned out I didn’t have enough for all the tucks and the extra panel for the button front.
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.

Happy weekend,


  1. Lovely prints.
    Can't wait to see the all new sewing room!

  2. I love your skirts, and I'm envious of your newly organized sewing space. Can't wait to see!

  3. Really cute skirts! I wish I had your talents!
