New Skirt

From Sew Liberated - Jersey Garden Skirt

The flowers are all made using reverse applique.
Meg has a great system for the technique involving freezer paper and tear-away stabilizer.
It worked great! And I got the whole skirt started and finished yesterday.
I didn't have enough fabric, so it's not as full as the one in the book, but it's so comfortable that I am choosing not to mind the clingy-ness on my derriere.

Yay! Fun skirt. Is that applique along the bottom or a print on the fabric?

Popping over from Made By You Monday.

Your skirt is darling...there is nothing more comfortable that a jersey skirt is there?

I have a couple of inexpensive skirts like yours from Old Navy. I am totally going to have to try the appliqué...it would turn a semi-boring skirt into an amazing one. Thanks for the idea!!!
