Easy Beach Skirt.

I'm slowly working through my stash and mostly I've sewn skirts for my for my daughter. This turquoise fabric was originally destined to be made into this long sleeve blouse pattern (McCall's 6286).
I might make this shirt in the winter.
Maybe in a type of Linen...
But in the end I sewed it up into another skirt. I decided on a flowing and summery style skirt, great for walking barefoot on the beach. Too bad if the wearer had other ideas...the joy of being the sewer! 

Pattern used: New Look 6942
Size: 14
Fabric: (Cotton Broderie Anglaise type)
Notions: Thread, Chord, Elastic

Was an easy pattern? Yes

I didn't have to add much length as the
pattern pieces were long enough
This time I marked my fabric well. Not like my
first attempt at this type of skirt
This fabric was a popular choice for the cat...
Just given it a wash to soften
the fabric
The flowery white pattern is printed on
which made ironing hard. I had to lower
the temperature to a silk setting
Sideways view...I'll make this again
 but perhaps a bit smaller
