Publicity for my book in the UK has just about come to an end, and I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to write a guest post for The Craft Institute’s blog. Pop on over to their blog to check it out…there are plenty of project ideas for reusing fabric.

The photos below are of the sweet summer skirt project from my book. So simple and addictive, you can whip up cute skirts from frumpy old frocks in no time.

Be on the lookout for stunning fabrics and designs – it’s surprising what you can find with this project in mind. A dress without a waistline is ideal, but not essential – think beyond the dress and imagine a sweet skirt. It doesn’t matter if the dress is too big on you, as the excess fabric will be gathered into a waistband. Use any leftover fabric to make a scarf, a fabric flower embellishment or a bow.
