I will always have a reason to stash small pieces of leftover fabrics and I believe my excuses are truly valid. I use leftovers for linings, for contrast trims, for covering buttons, for bows or any other detail I can think of. Possibly not everyone in our family shares this love, but I love going trough my bits and pieces. My new pencil skirt is about mixing and matching fabrics within the same colour range. I used this black and white cotton flower print, mixed with some leftover uni cotton for the waistband and lace to make this design. At the waistband I sewed on two strokes of a vintage lace ribbon which I found at the fleamarket of ‘Porte de Clignancourt’ years ago. You see, eventually everything will get its purpose!
Easy pattern DIY: For this skirt I made a slant cutting into a basic skirt pattern . That’s it!
