On Friday we showed you a little deer (skirt) in the woods, and today we’re going to show you another creature we found in the woods. This one is a fox!
Like a fox, this skirt is not as shy and delicate as the deer skirt. Although we used the Lottie Skirt pattern by Violette Field Threads to create both skirts, each one has a different personality because of the different fabric choices, Forest Friends pocket creatures, and skirt layer options.
To start with, we found a little vintage strawberry print cotton fabric in our stash, and knew it would make a perfect Lottie Skirt.
We chose the pleated suspenders, but made only a single layer skirt.
The inside lining of the suspenders are sort sly like the fox, with a pop of fun polka dot fabric also used on the fox pockets.
There are two more Forest Friends pocket creatures, so keep watching for them to appear in other projects! They are not difficult to assemble, just a little time consuming, but oh, so worth the extra effort.
Just for fun, and since all this fabric came from our stash we’re going to link to the other items we’ve made from these fabrics. The navy blue sateen fabric for the waistband and suspenders was first used in Allegra’s Bistro Dress.
The red polka dot fabric was used in Allegra’s Emilie Skirt.
And Annie’s Bimaa cowl neck top was first seen in this bubble blog post last January, but the cowl fabric was leftover from this shirt and also used in these baby skirts! So we really love to challenge ourselves in sewing from our fabric stash, and seeing how many different ways we can use these fabrics.
Once again, Allegra took all these photographs. I think she captured the different personalities of the two skirts accurately in each set of photos, don’t you?
Annie can’t decide which of these two skirts is her favorite! When she decides which one she want to keep, the other one will be available in our shop, which will be opening any day now. Which Lottie Skirt is your favorite?
