Indigo + Shibori Self Drafted Skirt

Hello everyone!

Over at the business I own with my mom and sister, The Tin Thimble, my mom has been on an indgo + shibori roll. 

When she showed me this piece, I loved it so much I asked her if I could have it.  She agreed and I held onto it for months before I could bring myself to cut into it. The project just had to be perfect, you know?

The piece was less than 3/4 of a yard, so I knew I didn't have a lot of options. I ended up making a very simple self-drafted skirt with a basic waistband.

The fabric is so unique and interesting that I knew the simple lines of this skirt would let the fabric shine. It is comprised of just a rectangular 1" waistband and a gathered rectangle skirt.

The fabric is this 100% linen, so it's cool and great for summer.

I've been needing a basic skirt like this in my wardrobe, and the fact that I was able to make it out of my mom's shibori + indigo fabric makes it special and pretty and wearable and everything I wanted it to be! 

I'm also wearing the Julia tank by Seamwork magazine. 

If you're interested in purchasing some of this lovely fabric we have a few pieces still for sale here. All the rest of the pieces we had have sold, but we'll be adding more soon.

Don't forget, if you use the code 'Palindrome' when checking out of the Thimble's Etsy shop you get 10% off your purchase of all sewing supplies.

Thanks for stopping by and hanging out. Have a great weekend!


Other details: Sewn with my Janome HD3000. Bracelet and necklace were gifts.
