I started out with some beautiful fabric that reminded me of strawberries!
Polkadots of course.
I used my favorite pattern from Hadley Grace Designs, but wanted to do a paneled skirt like I had on my skirt/dress creation last year.
I decided to do my favorite french seams on the paneled skirt.
In case you haven't done them, they are super easy!
First, sew your fabric panels wrong sides together, 1/4 inch seam.
This feels super wrong, but do it anyway.
Then turn the fabric over with the seam inside and sew a second seam at 3/8 inch,
encasing the first seam allowance, and leaving a finished seam with no raw edges.
I love how smooth they look, even better than serging!
And here's the finished skirt!
Add a rufflicious strawberry and we're ready!!
My little strawberry blossom!
I belong in the South.
Except for my extreme fear of hurricanes.
We got 15 minutes to eat as many strawberries as we could!!
It doesn't get much better than that.
Unless of course there was a chocolate fountain in the field.
Redder is Better!!
Lip Smackin' Good!
Happy Strawberry Season to you!
