When I saw this linen in the fabric store I instantly knew what I wanted to do with it (makes for a nice change from all those fat quarters I buy & stash!): gored skirt. Happily it turned out just as I imagined! Even more exciting is that I didn't have a pattern for this skirt, making it the first non-stretch article of clothing I've made pattern free! Free from a commercial pattern that is, I did draft my own on newspaper and sewed a muslin of it first to test it out. And we've had some nice weather lately so I was able to wear it! Hooray for handmade!
