How to: sew a button-up scallop skirt
Every now and then we seem to be getting a glimpse of blue skyies through all the rain. Surely it's time to crack open the summer wardrobe a little more for Londoners?
If you need some inspiration for getting out your sewing machine and making a little something to add to your summer wardrobe, you should check out this tutorial by Nette Vivante on how to make a DIY scallop button up skirt.
It's a free pattern complete with printable pdf, that will help you to whizz up a skirt for yourself.
The scallops add a cool feature and making scallops is a really good technique to learn if you haven't tried it before.
Nette is a student from Germany who says she has a passion for sewing and crafting, but I think she obviously has a talent as well since this skirt is a simple but beautiful design.
Excuse me while I go and buy some fabric and find some buttons...
