... Mr Saucepan on his way to the school Book Parade (the saucepans are now back in the car, waiting a return visit to the op shop)
... This one doesn't actually fit in with the op shop theme, but I combined some deep blue cotton from my stash, some of the leftover waistband fabric from the jeans, and some courage inspired by Lara's skirt to come up with a breezy summer skirt that I can recraft into something more inspiring once the baby's born. Construction was easy:
- Cut the fabric in half across its width,
- Join the two pieces into a tube, and gather the top to a width a bit bigger than my anticipated final girth
- Join the waistband fabric into a (smaller) tube and fold in half to give a folded edge at the top and two raw edges together at the bottom
- Stitch skirt fabric onto the stretched waistband, then hem.
