Christy from Sew Much Fabric, Sew Little Time gets the credit for this one! She makes some wonderful things, and in this post, I spotted something made from a fabric I've had languishing in my stash for oh-so-long. I love this print, but for some reason, I thought I only had one yard, so I've passed it by many times.
Because I'm on a back to basics, tried and true kick right now, I used Burda 8090, my favorite fuller skirt pattern.
Inside, aqua bias tape trims the facing and Flexi-Lace finishes the hem.
Georgeina asked why I use the lace on my hems. Well, because that's how my mom taught me! Actually, when I first started asking my mom to sew things for me, it was because I was in love with Lilly Pulitzer skirts, but too cheap to pay $118 for one. One of the details on the Lilly skirts is that special Lilly lace at the hem.
And so, to indulge her only girl, mom made sure she added lace to the hems of the skirts she made, so they'd be just like the ones I coveted!
