Bits and Pieces

I am in major destash mode at the moment, so if you are after fabric I am your girl! As a result I have also been cutting out like mad & my UFO pile is ginormous! I have battled a pile & hopefully I will have some pics of soon. These are a couple of skirts I finished today that were in the pile....


They ahve been made from vintage recycled tablecloths. The first 2 pics are the same skirt, just back & front, made from 2 different seersucker tablecloths & the last is from a heavier weight cotton table cloth - it would have to be my favourite.
.

I also finished up these pants for Liam. I was trying to make a pattern for long shorts, but they turned out more like pants, which is fine as the weather down here still doesn't really allow for wearing shorts at the moment...roll on summer.....
This last picture is of Em in the most gorgeous vintage, very retro dress I picked up at the opshop - it was made for her - it fits perfectly! It cost $8 which is more than I would normally pay for clothing from the opshop, but I just had to have it - I would easily have paid more!
