$3 skirt


At The Cloth Shop Melbourne, we saw the nicest fabric. This confirmed that Melbourne sewers have loads of taste and choice. As I'm a bit of a bargain shopper, there was a roll of corduroy, black with a greenish print. The aim of our Melbourne trip was to build green into my wardrobe, so this was perfect. The price of the fabric was more perfect $3/metre.

Once I'd completed my slow walk around the bolts of fabric, imagining 'what could be', I found the bargain box and this fabric was peeping at me.
The owner at The Cloth Shop was very chatty and we arrived there at the end of a long day of fabric shopping. If there were cappuccinos in the store, I think we would have stayed longer.
I don't normally use a red zipper for a black shirt but this is a casual zipper. I wouldn't try this with properly tailored garments.
The skirt is fully lined because this is a winter skirt and without lining, it clings to my winter tights or fishnets.

Cute! I love the print.

Thanks. The rest of the fabric has less of a print so I'll end up making a casual jacket soon.

You will get so much wear out of this skirt, seeing it with the green top really lifts it.

Thanks Sharon. This is also motivation to make up the green fabrics I bought in Melbourne.
