Picnic Blanket Skirt

Possibly a bit late on the bandwagon but I have just discovered The Great British Sewing Bee. I haven't made clothes in a really long time and watching this show really inspired me to get back into it. So I began following Tilly Walnes (@tillybuttons) on twitter and followed the link to her blog which had the tutorial for making the skirt she was wearing in the first episode! I couldn't wait to get started! So it took me all afternoon and all evening but I have finished!

Please excuse the really poor picture quality, it is late and dark but I really wanted to get this on here. I wasn't too happy with the fabric I choose, I do like it but it didn't quite have the look I was going for which is fine, gives me a reason to make another! 

The instructions are super simple to follow and have really clear images to help you along the way. This is a really easy project for a beginner or if you want to refresh your memory (like me). 

Here's the link to her website where you can find the tutorial.

  2. This is a terrible picture :( but I was so pleased with the skirt that I made another in gingham. It's perfect for wearing around the house or out shopping and it's easy to make too.
