Leonie, I love you!!

A while back, Leonie wrote a fabulous post about making a skirt ... without an over-locker!!! Oh joy!!!!!
(Note the link to the adjustments for adult sized skirts)

She called it "Simple wrap skirt from scraps".
Well, I have to say, Leonie, you weren't talking about patchwork scraps.
I needed some LARGE pieces (especially to fit over my large bum!)

But the end result is fabulous ... if I do say so myself ...


It has 2 front panel options, depending on how you tie it ...


And the other panel peeps out the side to add a bit of interest ...


Thanks Leonie. You rock!!!

Andi :-)

This is so cute, I want to make one! I'm curious about something, in the tutorial, the pattern looks angular, is the skirt angular? It doesn't look like it when it's on though, interesting but LOVE IT!

I want to make on ... instantly!!!!!

Well done you!!! That skirt looks fabulous.

(Which reminds me... I made a skirt at my first craft camp and all I have to do is hem it. It's been about 2 months.... really should get onto that...)

Love your skirt Andi!

Looks fab!
Sometimes I feel like the best crafting of all is the crafting you can wear out the front door.
How much fun will it be when someone asks you where you got your gorgeous skirt! X

hey...you could make it reversible...using maybe blues on the underside for another entirely different look...have 4 skirt looks in one skirt then...

What a fantastic skirt, so bright and cheery. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the large print fabric (and would love to know what it is).

Love the skirt, but it seems that Leonie's blog is no longer where it was. Do you know if she's migrated it to somewhere else? I'd love to try making this :-)
