Whilst we were in Wales I saw this very pretty fabric, Road Well Traveled by Marcus Fabrics and just had to have it. My hand was reaching for it before my conscious brain had kicked in – my subconscious brain had already worked out it was exactly my colours and that I was going to make a skirt.
Knowing that I have a skirt pattern that I developed from my own measurements to use 1.5 metres of fabric (If I use a different fabric for a facing) if the fabric is 44″ wide, so I promptly asked for just that. It gives me exactly the right length for a just below the knee look that I like.
I love it, its the perfect mix of autumnal tones that you all know I love and adore.
And just because its always fun to see the hidden bits and pieces. Here is my perfectly executed invisible zip, I do so enjoy an invisible zip, and the fabric I chose for fun to use for the skirts facings. You’ll never see it but every time I put that skirt on I’ll see its flash of green fun fabric and smile a happy smile.
And a quick snap of it just as it was finished, where you can see the waistline more clearly.

Oh pretty! I saw the picture first and thought what a perfect Mandy fabric it was and I love the facings, I suspect I recognise that fabric!!
You do, I still have about half a metre left, just enough to filter into projects in surprising ways.
Such a lovely skirt from amazing fabric! I found you via your Ravelry Gnarled Oak Sweater project and visiting your blog has been an absolute delight! (On rav I am kmjackson). So nice to “meet” you MandyCharlie.
Thank you, such a lovely hello, welcome to my blog.
