Sneaky peak of Folksy skirt
Well I’ve started on my Folksy/Sue Ryder project and thought I’d give you some sneaky previews.
I started on the denim skirt which I decided was in need of some colour and for me that meant embroidery. So here’s some glimpses of it…what you thought you were going to see it all?
- Front hem of skirt
I’ve put a couple of love hearts on the front waistband one of which has the message “hello” on it.
- “hello” top right waist band
It annoys me that some skirts have beautiful work on the front but the back is completely plain. Ok, so we need to be practical but a bit of embellishment to the bottom never hurts.

And then we need a strong but simple design. I think it works but will wait til I get a willing model to see if I need to alter or add anything. In the picture below you should also be able to see that I’ve added some coloured threads to the stitching. It’s not all over but hopefully compliments my designs.

Ok so, what do you think?
My next part of the project will be to tackle the frumpy tweed skirt. Should be fun with a pair of scissors.
