I feel as though these pictures should be staged on a picnic blanket, with a beautiful wicker basket overflowing with yummy goodies and possibly the cutest puppy you have ever seen frolicking in the background… can you picture it? This skirt just gives me that feeling…ummm….probably because I once ate off it when it used to be a tablecloth! True story!! A lapse in judgement on my part!! I’m sitting there eating a lovely dinner with my family and I’m thinking…Why did I use this fabric for a tablecloth!?? These people are going to spill gravy all over it and it will be ruined!! As soon as dinner was over, I whipped it off the table and into the wash then hid it safely back in my stash! Whew! No stains!
I made this skirt from the McCalls 6706. I am loving this pattern so much! Again I moved the zipper from the side to the back and added pockets. You can see the previous skirts I made and my review, here and here.
I paired my new skirt with a checked shirt and my Lia Sophia necklace. My best friend sells Lia Sophia and I wear this necklace a lot! I don’t usually invest this much into a piece of costume jewelry but it was so worth it.
I’m loving the pattern mixing of the floral and checks. I feel so girly and me in it. I am at a place in my life now that I truly want to wear what I like and what makes me feel confident. This outfit definitely put a little extra spring in my step today.
I may not have had the picnic in the park today but I did have a great day with Husband walking around the Public Gardens and the waterfront. Our picnic just happened to be at a local pub where I had the best diet coke and sweet potato fries ever..minus the gravy!
Love the pairing of the checks with the flowers! What a great save of that material off the table and into your stash and now to a beautiful skirt!
This pattern is gold! This shape looks great on you, and I love it worn with the shirt. (I never know how to wear shirts, so I´m taking notes)
And the fabric! So good you changed you mind about usisg it as a tablecloth!:)
I love Lia Sophia's line!! I've spent way too much money with her. And great save with the tablecloth. It's made a beautiful skirt!
You are cracking me up with the table cloth part! Don't spill anything, don't spill anything. I like seeing all your versions of this pattern. It's a great look for you and seems to go with your wardrobe. Hooray!
That is beautiful fabric – so glad you are wearing it and no longer eating off it. Great skirt pattern too, really suits the floaty feeling of the print.
Super! I love the mix of floral and gingham.
You always come up with the cutest outfits, I must copy!
Love your new skirt, pretty fabric and style!
I agree. This fabric was much more suited for your skirt rather than your table. 🙂 Love the gingham with the floral. Great outfit and you wear it so well.
Thanks Becki! Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, they say, so copy away!!
Thanks Heather! I can't seem to get enough of these skirts!
Thanks Merche! I tend to make the same pattern over and over again…but I like it soooo much. I can't stop!
Yeah thanks Kristy, my kids did not appreciate the beauty of this fabric…a good meal..yes..pretty fabric….no.
Thanks Shanni! I was jusst grateful that it didn't get stained!!
What gorgeous colours in that fabric, and it looks so good with the checked blouse!
did you wear it with the petticoat inside? 🙂
