When I created the Out to Sea fabric, I had of course planned it to be for children. But I wanted to get some use out of it too! So I made sure to include textiles that were sophisticated and simple enough to wear and use myself!
(Perks of designing your own fabric is getting to design when I want to wear!)
Another GREAT perk is that this fabric is a new quality than my last....called Cotton Couture: It's a high density cotton that is VERY soft to the touch and perfect for apparel but not gauzy or too light for quilting. I knew this line would be perfect for clothing, and so I wanted to make sure that it wouldn't be harsh on the skin at all.
So when I got the fabric (12 days before Quilt Market) I needed to create an outfit out of my own fabric. And I dreamed of a navy anchor skirt with a peter pan collared blouse.
And knowing Liz of Cotton & Curls, she'd want to share how to make it...and she agreed to sew for me!
She's WAY cuter than me so I'm posting this fab pic of her wearing this elastic a-line skirt perfect for any body type!
Head on over to her (INCREDIBLE) blog and learn how to make the Peter Pan collar and Skirt!
(These were made in the Anchors Away Navy and the Sea Flowers Nacy prints)
