Springtime = flowertime - Moss skirt - Grainline

Good Sunday everybody. Hope you have had a nice and relaxing weekend. 
Mine was sunny. A few life changing things happened last week, but I will tell you in some future posts. ;-) 

Today, I want to share my moss skirt. Some of you might have seen it a few days ago on instagram already.

It's springtime, so I was really in need of some cute skirt. Then, Moss Skirt  pattern popped into my mind. I have always been a huge fan of sewing patterns by grainline studio. Professional patterns and instructions - but what I appreciate the most is, that all of those patterns are totally wearable in everyday life. I already tried Tiny Pocket Tank and Archer Button Up Shirt and none of these garments became one of those hiding in my cupboard.


Let's get back to the skirt! I found this interesting fabric as a remnant on the Dutch fabric markets and fell in love immediately. The color and photo realistic print caught my eye. Aren't these rose colored flowers just nice? 
It was not specified, but I guess it is a cotton blend. It is slightly elastic and medium weight. 


As already mentioned, the pattern was very clear and good to follow. Main difficulty during this project was print matching. I wanted to make it as perfect as possible, although I had to waste a lot of this beautiful fabric, just to get the right matching parts for skirt front and back.
Tadaaa! It worked and I am so happy. Only downside, I did not have enough fabric to also match the upper part of skirt back with bottom part...but that is OK. :-)


Have you tried Moss Skirt, yet? I believe in endless possible variations and will surely make up some more for this year.
Here comes my top three on the blogosphere:


Have a good week ladies! :-*
