Stitching ruffled skirts
Stash buster extraordinaire
Of course Victorian inspired clothing is a real stash buster because of the quantities of textile required. In general, I upcycled at least 3 skirts into each ruffled creation.
Applique Flower Detail
As these skirts were definitely costume pieces rather than every day wear, I allowed myself to get carried away with the details such as the applique flowers and the ribbon suspender hitch belt above which can be used to create a bustle or hitch effect.
Read more about the skirts and lots more photos, including my Lucy Locket pocket skirt, over on my blog at karenvallerius.co.uk.
Happy stitching everyone.
