Flirting the Issue

Linking up to Quiltstory's Fabric Tuesday today...it's been quite a while for me :)

I have had Anna Maria Horner's Flirting the Issue skirt on my to-do list for a while.

I was kind of waiting for some courage to drop the cash on voile, but then I couldn't keep my eyes off Laura Gunn's Magnolia Lane (for Michael Miller) collection. It is so...spring. So I took the plunge on the Blooming Tulips print, and used plain white cotton batiste for lining.

I love it. It's a little more poofy and a little less flowy because it is cotton instead of voile. My husband says the skirt is very "Rachel Berry." Umm...okay, I'll admit, I like her style, and I've said it out loud before.

Hope y'all are having a great Tuesday :)


  1. I have this pattern downloaded, but so far I have not attempted to make it..I am wondering about how the waist part looks on those of us who are over the age of 40 :)! You picked out beautiful fabric and I just may try to make it sometime this week...

  2. Oh so pretty!! I think it will be a perfect spring skirt!

  3. Cute! I also am concerned about the waist part. I tend to be a little poochy and short-torso'd...and pucker stitches are unforgiving on me.

  4. You did a fantastic job on it :)

  5. beautiful!! I love that skirt but it looks like too much elastic for my allergies to handle. I'll just have to keep enjoying it on other people!

  6. That is such sweet fabric - what a fun summer skirt!

  7. Glad to see you back Mary! :) LOVE this skirt, very spring and utterly fabulous fabric for it. Thanks for linking to fabric Tuesday :)
