Olive Skirt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Getting it finished! What advice would you give someone starting this project? When away from home take something like this project with you. Negative reverse applique takes less thread and this uses a running stitch, so it goes pretty fast~

What you will need

  • Organic Light weight 100% cotton jersey in Olive
  • blended textile paint
  • my Anna's Garden stencil
  • brown button thread
  • and 1 1/2" AC fold-over 'Earth' elastic

Q&A with amyrt

faux nom asked:
Very nice! Great colors and technique. My next project, after I finish a Facets skirt, will be an Anna's Garden skirt in negative reverse applique. So it's great to see a real life example. Did you find cutting around the shapes to be challenging, or about the same as cutting reverse applique shapes?
amyrt answered:
Cutting around the shapes here is a little more forgiving, I think. I left my knots in or out, whichever way my needle ended up. It was a little tricky maneuvering around the long tails with the scissors, but worth it for the look. Come to think of it if I had to do it again I might leave all of the knots OUT for ultimate comfort~
