Libby in roses, a skirt for summer and holiday memories

Cheers to a New Year and happy holidays all!

This skirt has a holiday vibe for me. It’s Tessuti’s free A-line Libby skirt pattern. The fabric is a Cath Kindston furnishing fabric, 100% cotton duck, very heavy like a denim. Such a shame she doesn’t sell all her line in more drapey fabric. I’d be a fan. Still I think it works for a casual skirt, though as you’ll see it does crush a lot. But I just loved the print. Being heavy and cotton it’s soo easy to work with, solid and presses beautifully.


I bought the fabric on holidays in the UK. One of the many lovely things about buying fabric on holidays is that the items you make can remind you of the holiday, this time the ancient and beautiful city of Winchester, Hampshire.

This was a very quick make, because the fabric was so easy to work with. And its such a simple skirt. Very neat, with the invisible zip.

I’ve made the Libby skirt as Christmas presents, here.



I think Libby will be my new favorite skirt pattern.

Do you have fabric that brings back holiday memories?
