I made this skirt awhile back, but it was too full. So, I took in the side seams and made it a little more pencil skirt like. The fabric is from some old barkcloth drapes I got at an antique store in North Dakota. I made a tote bag as well, plus a knitting bag that I sold to a friend. As you might imagine it is kind of heavy. Not quite summer wear. Better for spring or maybe fall with some black boots. I tested the barkcloth and washed a swatch it really washed well. However, due to its age I won’t be washing it.
I love working with unusual fabrics, especially vintage. I also found a fabric that reminds me of a Swedish print. I’m making a skirt too, but have a lot leftover, this stuff is awesome to work with. Do you have a favorite type of fabric you like to work with?
