And here she goes again, Flora no.2!

Making the flora skirt second time around was really quick. I was done and dusted in 2 hours! (with the exception of hand-sewing on the hook and bar to the waistband which was done the next day because midnight was fast approaching!). This time I shortened the back pieces a little, inserted a side zip and attached a waistband that overlaps on the right hand side.

The fabric is a wax print from a shop in Walthamstow and I have 5 yards which I means I still have loads left. I really like the bright colours and these wax prints are SO easy to sew with. Given the weather over the last week or so  i’ll be wearing this with a summery top and sandals, although I think I’ll stand out quite a lot!
