Indian Summer: One Thimble Blog Tour

The new issue of One Thimble, a quarterly sewing ezine, is out and it's full of cute patterns!  I especially love the versatility of the Cosmos Reversible Skirt by Sew Maris Designs.

I used some Art Gallery fabric from a couple years ago that I had in my stash.  The line is called Indian Summer and Bitty Bee loves it!  For the first side, I picked a light background with trees and teepees and mountains.

For the reverse side, I chose a darker fabric, this one in teal with feathers and cacti.

To go with the skirt, I found a teal long sleeved shirt and added a touch of embroidery to the front.

I really like the length of this skirt, it comes down to her knees, 
which is a good length for back to school.
Plus, it's "dad-approved" at this length!

I did change up the construction just a little,
I made a casing for an enclosed elastic waistband after sewing the bottom scallops and turning, instead of the fold over elastic waistband.

I look forward to taking the time to read the rest of this issue of One Thimble, the patterns all look amazing and I hear there are some really good articles!

  1. That skirt is wonderful (and I was wondering what that fabric was... love it!) I like the change. I really liked the FOE on it, as a different way, but this looks nice too.

  2. This is gorgeous! I love how you get the two looks from the one skirt!

  3. Thanks so much, Princess Bee, for your nice words about my Cosmos Skirt pattern! Your daughter looks adorable in your version!
