I really like wearing linen skirts and have a couple that I use on holiday that were shortened from old bias cut skirts that I have had for years.
I decided that I wanted some to wear for work and found this pattern by Newlook number 6053.
I made it first in black and used some bias binding that I found in Liberty's in London, to hem it. The binding didn't show but I new it was there.
Then I decided to make a second skirt from the same pattern but this time put the bias binding on the outside and I love it!
(The other rose patterned fabric is just the facing at the waist edge).
Our first Hollyhock came out this week and I am hoping the others will flower next year aswell.
The colour is fantastic and the plants are made more special as the hanfull of seeds were pulled from some plants I admired, and given to me by a very kind person.
