The Picnic Blanket Skirt

I have been eyeballing the Picnic Blanket Skirt over at
Tillys for a long time.
And finally, the time was here.
A dress from about 6 years back had been laying in my closet.
It had shrunk around the chest, (Yeh, can you imagine, my clothes are skrinking! )
and everything was falling out. But I always loved the colors of this fabric, so I could`nt get rid of it.
(I have a big problem whit throwing clothes, even when I havent been using them for years, cause you`ll never know!)
So, I figured it would go perfect as a Picnic Blanket Skirt, since the skirt on this dress was veeeeery wide.
Cut cut, snip, sew sew, button here and button there, 
and voila!

The buttons are hand-me-downs from my grandmother. 
They are probably from the 60`s or 70`s.
The gold goes perfect whit the gold-like pattern on the fabric.
I really like this model, and the way it hugs my waist. 
There will be many more for shure! 


  1. I love that fabric, good save!

  2. Gorgeous! Well done on saving the fabric, I shod do that to some of my old clothes. And the buttons are lovely :)

    1. Thank you:) i always wanted to be one of those people who magically make nesw things out of old clothes, but unfortunately, that happens way to seldom...
