Charity Blog Sale - Red Tulip Skirt

After helping May at May Loves Makeup with her Charity Blog Sale last year, I was delighted to be asked to sew again for this sale. Therefore I am pleased to present the Red Tulip Skirt: (although it looks pink-y in the pictures, it's actually tomato red in real life - the picture showing the overlocked seams is the most accurate colour representation). After not selling on eBay earlier in the year, I'm now selling it here on my blog with all proceeds going to the Japanese Flood Relief.

The details:

  • Bright red heavy cotton tulip skirt - the heavy fabric means this hangs beautifully

  • Fitted from the natural waist, looks great for a night out, or with a shirt tucked in for a smart day look

  • size 10-12

  • Handmade, all edges overlocked for no fraying. Hem is reinforced (it's a tight skirt at the knees, I've ripped several from trying walk too fast!)

  • Side zip

  • Un-lined.

Close ups:

The pleats on the front and back are the same

All edges have been fully overlocked so there'll be no fraying. This was my first go with an overlocker so it was very exciting! You can also see here how the bottom has been reinforced with a facing and invisibly stitched.

The skirt features a concealed red zip

Volunteering your time to charity is a great way to enrich other people's lives as well as your own. It is best to figure out in advance your interests and skills and match those to the needs and mission of the charity.

Your entire place may feel fresh, on-trend but ageless, and sophisticated with something as simple as an accent wall, colourful light bulb, or new throw cushion (or forty seven more home décor ideas if those aren't up your redecorating alley). You can complete each of these decorating ideas in a single day, yet the results will appear to have taken much longer. Is there no designated reading area? It's no problem.
