.saffron skirt.


Last night I stayed up waaaaaay too late (the story of my life!). Sewing was on the agenda and I made not one, but two, skirts for myself! I think I am safe to officially declare that I have more than enough skirts. But I love fabric too much and have been wanting to make myself skirts out of two of my favourite prints at the moment.

Here is skirt number one...this fabric is designed by an Aussie - Saffron Craig. Her designs are lovely and this one in particular has a very Australian feel to it. I love the colours, I love the parrots and I love wearing it!

What pattern did I use to make the skirt, you may ask? I might just tell you about that a bit later on ;)


SUPPLIES:
Saffron Craig, Fields, Parrot
Patty Young, Flora and Fauna, Dandelion in Turquoise
Sandy Henderson, Farmers Market, Geometric in Fuschia
