Table cloth skirt




The title of this post is a little deceptive - this is not made of a actual table cloth. But the women who sold me the fabric told me that a customer said it looked just like a cloth you put on the kitchen table. I'm not sure the customer meant it in a good way, but for me the this is the USP of the fabric (aka unique selling point, sorry for the biz lingo, have been watching a lot of The Apprentice UK lately!). The pattern is like a cross between a kitchen towel, a table cloth and vintage mattress ticking. Another great thing about this fabric is that it is a soft cotton knit. so it falls really beautifully. I drafted the pattern myself, the method is similar to how I did this skirt (but with less gathers). Promised to make a tutorial on how to make this easy skirt pattern, but I lost some of the pics, so I need to take a few new ones before I can post it.
