Anemone Skirt again!

Anemone

I love this pattern, I've made three skirts from the same pattern so far, and plan more! This one I made a few weeks ago on a whim using a vintage tablecloth. I stupidly made the same mistake I made when cutting out my first Anemone (also made from a vintage tablecloth), and cut the two back side panels the wrong way round, so the pattern doesn't work as I wanted it to.

Although I do think this skirt is really pretty I haven't worn it until today because I'm not sure so much white suits me, and I struggled to find a top that worked with the skirt.Sadly I don't think this one will get worn much.

  1. Oh, lovely! Why don't you dye it a darker colour?

  2. Exactly what I was thinking - a bit of over dyeing might make it work better for you...

  3. Great idea to dye it. I have the same problem with white, can't wear it. I also have loads of vintage tablecloths. Im looking forward to starting on a deer and doe dress. lovely designs x

  4. I think white does suit you, wouldn't this top work with it?
