*Sorry, you are going to get this post again as something went awry and my text got cut off.
This skirt pattern has been in my stash for a long time and I don’t know why I haven’t made it before.
It is from 1977 and therefore falls into the “vintage sewing pattern pledge” category. A warning: the following photos are poor quality as they were taken with my iphone because I managed to leave my camera at work.
I made this from a waxed linen that I bought from Spotlight’s curtain department, and which was reduced down to less than $3 a metre. Can’t go wrong for that price. The colour was charcoal, but looking at it against black it seems to have some brown in it.
