12 Days of Christmas Project 8 – Super Quick Christmas Skirt.

14 12 2011

You may have noticed that I missed yesterday.  Sorry about that, we had some technical issues which resulted in me losing all the photos.  I have not restored them, so yesterday is a write off, and we will recommence today with yesterdays project, but without the step by step photos.  I had remade this project from a pattern I wrote about 6 years ago.  It is very quick, very easy and a little bit rustic.

Here is the pattern

Detail of two panels:

You have two options for the shape of the panels.  You can tape two A4 sheets together, matching the lines or you can take on A4 sheet to a photocopier and increase its size to A3.

The beauty of this pattern is that you can use the shapes and the embroidery for a heap of other things, like napkins or bags, or stockings etc.

You can also make it less rustic simply be changing the fabrics.  Try some red silk with velvet applique as the top with gold or black embroidery for example.  Anyway just play and enjoy it.  We will be back to normaly tomorrow.
