A stripey petticoat to match the new knit....

Thursday, 19 March 2009
Just made this before starting work this morning.
I made a trial run yesterday using an old white sheet before cutting into my prized red seersucker (who on earth invented that name?). It was meant for a summer dress to match up with some pea green seersucker but I NEED a stripey petticoat today!!!

A nice easy 6 gore skirt pattern with an added bottom frill for a bit of flounce factor. Perfect for under my summer skirts which are a little too chilly at the moment! + I love layered skirts!

  1. Gorgeous! I didn't know I liked layered skirts but I do now. It's a good idea having it longer and on show like that. When I don't want my skirt to look too transparent,I wear 2 skirts together but have the underneath one shorter. Now I see what I'm doing wrong! Thanks for the idea :)x
