So far have had several 'ideas'....but only have time to make one.
5. Make a skirt from old pair of trousers.
Went for number 5!
|Original pair of trousers|
Have decided to look for fabric that matches the facing fabric on the linen trousers. So a pale grey and blue stripe.
ok..I went to fabric shop and got distracted. No striped grey linen but they did have some broderie anglaise. So I bought that instead. Bought enough to make a blouse out of it too.
Cut out the fabric pinned in place and sewed. I've only done one side so far.
And It needs pressing.
Took me a bit to figure out how to sew it in so the seams were on the inside.
Update 3 - Finished!
Hemmed and pressed here is the finished skirt.
