I found this Autumn coloured check cotton at our local fabric shop . Truro Fabrics,a great place full of lovely textiles ,yarn,books and magazines about all types of needlework,knitting and crafting of many kinds.The shop is famous here in Cornwall and people come distances to shop there. One good reason is the wonderful staff who are all enthusiasts and have great knowledge to share.
I decided to play around with a little pocket and even tried a few lazy daisies,I haven't done any embroidery for years and I think I might try and do some more.Mum taught me a few stitches a long time ago.
The little piece of antique lace I found in my lace box was just right!
So here it is finished! I will wear it with a lacy underskirt ,laceup brown boots and some lovely warm winter tights when it gets a bit chilly.I am not a very expert seamstress but I am happy with this skirt.
Next project is going to be another skirt from an old skirt pattern I just picked up for 40 pence in a charity shop this afternoon..
