Sham's Tablecloth Skirt

Since the first moment I laid eyes on Sham's fabulous design she named the "Tablecloth Skirt" I have been smitten. I am going through some skirt love lately. I think its my new boots but no matter. I want to make this skirt,  BADLY.  It is very effective in plaids. I love stripes and thought the graphic quality of the stripes could be really interesting with design.

Bloggers, check out Sham's gallery. There is a link there to a tutorial on making the skirt. It is fast, simple, and her analytical mind has reduced this pattern to it's utter substance, a design gem. I cut out my circle for the hips tonight and hope to move along with this tomorrow. This is so quick to make it is brilliant. I would love one or two out of linen for the summer.

Here is a quick pic of my new wall unit. I love it. It brings out a lot of the goodies I have hidden away. I really like to see my "palette" for inspiration. I have gone from a tidy sewing studio, rather minimalist, to one with lots of inspiration hanging around. More to come............Bunny

  2. Your wall unit is a work of art!
    Can't wait to see your skirt. I am so intrigued by this design, but I still cannot bring myself to make it, because I have a feeling that I will end up not wearing it. May-be if I see enough of them...

  4. The wall unit is wonderful. It makes me wish I had more stashed trims so I could hang them up in my sewing room. Your skirt looks like it's going to be interesting with those stripes.

  5. I would also be a great place to hang interfacings and stabilizers. I may end up switching things out now and then. Right now I have a really good set up for my interfacings so no go there. I also thought for my new wall unit, rolls of white, beige, and black interfacings would be pretty boring. I wanted a bit of excitement here. I think I have gone into a more "cluttered" look, not usually my MO but I think it will be inspirational.

  7. I am so interested in Sham's design and the lovely examples being posted and pinned...but the idea of that much fabric on me makes me stop and consider. Perhaps in a lightweight linen or cotton-hmmm. The fabic you are using looks familiar-I believe I made some Clovers out of that run.
