I bought it not realising it was part of their 150 year celebration prints. The yellow fabric is in the Cummersdale print which dates back to their founding year in 1864 and was originally a furnishing fabric, whereas the Bricks print on the right was originally a 1950s dress fabric.
I used the Viola skirt pattern from Sew Me Something, and despite a few problems with the fit (it seemed to grow and be much bigger than me!), I'm pleased with the finished result.
It can be worn either with the yellow skirt on top,
or with some clever turning, with just the longer skirt showing.
I reversed the buttons too, yellow on bricks,
I won't tell you how long it took me to get the pattern on the yellow buttons all centred the same but it was a long time even for my perfectionist nature!
I was going to wear it to work this week, but I had scabby knees from gardening so I'm hoping to wear it next week instead!
I've also just bought another of their 150 year prints, daisy chain, to make a blouse from,
but not just yet as the sun is shining and the garden needs my attention :-)
