The Smell of Summer

While Spring is fighting its way in, very slowly, I couldn't wait with my summery wrap-around skirt! It almost has the smell of Summer! 
I used the "Breezy Beach Wrap" pattern from "Sew What! Skirts:16 Simple Styles You Can Make with Fabulous Fabrics". And with this fabulous fabric I made this skirt that I absolutely love! I bought this fabric a couple of years ago in a charity shop here in Stockholm. A long pair of curtains made from quite heavy woven cottony, woolly, lineny material.

I had to add another panel to the skirt just so my behind is properly covered... And I made the waistband and straps wider than in the original pattern and I'm really happy with how it fits around the waist and how the straps hang.

Roll on Summer!
