Sarah from the studio has made this super pretty Wiltshire Blueberry Skirt using one of the exclusives from my recent ‘Butterfly Garden‘ collection.
I love seeing what people make using the fabrics we’ve designed. The skirt that Sarah has made is simply lovely. It uses the delicate tones of the Wiltshire Blueberry fabric in a floaty summer skirt. Although it’s autumn here now, combined with some warmer boots and a lovely jumper this could be worn across the seasons so it’s a great project.
I asked Sarah about the project:
What inspired your fabric choice for this lovely skirt?
“I love the classic Wiltshire print and this colourway caught my eye. Turquoise is one of my favourite colours and the combination with the purple can’t be beaten in my opinion.”
What pattern did you use and did you make any alterations?
“I didn’t use a bought pattern. I have a skirt which fits beautifully and I took a pattern from it. It consists of three panels at the front and three at the back and a zip at the side. It is also fully lined with white on white Liberty Lodden fabric
What do you love about dressmaking?
“I enjoy seeing the finished article and having a bespoke item of clothing.”
What do you not love about dressmaking?
“Occasionally, I make an item of clothing which looks beautiful on the hanger but doesn’t fit properly when I try it on. This is why I was inspired to attempt to take my own pattern from a skirt I love.”
Do you love the finished skirt?
“I love the skirt and am hoping that it will be wearable for a while longer before it becomes too cold.”
Where will you wear it?
“The lovely thing about the skirt is its flexibility. It is suitable for a host of different occasions and can be dressed up or down depending upon the top, shoes and jewellery you choose to wear with it. I hope to wear it to work with boots and a chunky jumper this autumn.”
Thank you Sarah for sharing your lovely skirt with us. It’s gorgeous!
