Gorgeous fabric choice Ali. And you're right the Barcelona pattern is easy to whip up - perfect summer skirts.

It's gorgeous

Tch, blog reading keeps making me feel tempted to attempt a skirt. Even though I have some skirts in the wardrobe gathering dust...


really lovely, although for me it would have to a be a lot longer, like no leg showing at all - well it wouldnt do for anyone to see the thermals underneath - it's still soooooooo cold here.......


I love the fabric it works really well, shows the print of lovely.
Do you put a lining in? Cheers


Completely stunning.
How wonderful to have such a pretty handmade item in your wardrobe.

The perfect match with that top, and those boots, and that garden. Very, very nice.

Oh dear....I can feel another skirt coming on! It's gorgeous! Love, Amanda xxx


Gorgeous. And a definite sign of spring if you can wear it with bare legs!


looking good - the perfect skirt for that gorgeous fabric. Wish I felt brave enough to attempt a zip!


I am so on the verge of attempting to make myself something to wear! This may well be the final push - it's gorgeous!


Now THAT is a fabulous skirt. Bravo!

That's gorgeous fabric. I've made one of those Barcelona skirts (although not actually worn it yet) in a quilting fabric. I put in the lining as per the instructions but I'm not convinced it is really necessary. Do you bother? Any advice please?!

Well done, the skirt looks wonderful! It goes really nicely with the boots as well. xxx


Gorgeous skirt - really lovely. I'm off to check out that pattern right now.

It's very pretty, and goes really well with those boots. Applause.


Really gorgeous. Fab legs too!!!


Oooh, lovely. There's nothing like an A line skirt in fabulous fabric to cheer you up!


It's fabulous... very springlike and looks great on you!


It's a stunner. Is this too complicated for a relative beginner do you think? Val's tutoring me with the sewing. I've got a long way to go but this is the kind of number I'd give my eye teeth for.


Fabulous! Such a gorgeous fabric and perfect fit! Must try the Barcelona skirt pattern now...

I like it. A lot. And I have a teeny bit of boot envy going on. Wish I was on better terms with my sewing machine.
