Outfit Number 24 - Tablecloth skirt!

Here is the tablecloth skirt complete!

It's kind of barkcloth in texture, but gorgeous colours and lovely print! I'll add a little clasp on the back, but I think it's another one for the etsy shop! (if hubby takes a gorgeous fashion pic of it!)

I love making new things from older things that people have thrown away! I think this was from an Adelaide opshop, and it had some tatty edges that didn't make it to the finished product here, although I did use the good edges for the hem of the skirt, so didn't need to run a new hem. Yay!


  1. Hey gorgeous work!
    I may see you tomorrow then .. I'll be the nervous one..behind the stall.

  2. Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog. I like this skirt, very 1950's which I dig alot! The guy modelling with the purse is a classic! Thanks for the laugh.

  3. I love the skirt! Using vintage fabrics is one of my current obsessions, and you did it very well!

  4. The skirt is wonderful, well done. I also love using vintage fabrics and try and incorporate them in my designs where ever possible. You are a very clever lass!

  5. This skirt is gorgeous, miss! LOVE it! You have been so busy with your 100 outfits... you are an inspiration!


Thanks for being awesome and a total darling, leave a message!
