When I was tidying the garage last week I came across this old pillow case (in our rag bag) and loved the colours. I thought it might be just the thing to try out sewing a pillow case skirt.
Here it is, takes about ten minutes to make. This is my first try, I am thinking that next time I will add some big front pockets for holding assorted gardening odds and ends and I will also use the pillow seam as the back of the skirt so that it can have a slit for more leg room. This is my kind of sewing, all I had to do was to sew a casing for the elastic waist. That's it. The hem of the pillow case became the hem of the skirt.(you getting a good laugh here, K?) Now I will be on the lookout for pillow cases whenever I go thrifting. Hey Katherine and Samantha, did you know we are getting our own Sally Ann on this side of the bridge?
O.K - I went ahead and put the slit in the back by just unpicking the seam a bit and finishing it, it is much more comfy for gardening this way.
