Applique on skirt

My mantra when starting this blog was ‘never leave things as they are’. A plain black skirt is plain no more due to a bit of applique work.

Last year The Chelsea Physic Garden Florilegium Society‘s amazing art work was used by Oasis for a clothing range. The Florilegium Society do absolutely awe-inspiring work.

As I was to attend the RHS Chelsea Flower Show I decided to get a top but although it was gorgeous it didn’t work on me.
So I recently decided that it was too lovely to sit in the drawer…. I took my black skirt, some fixing paper, my (rarely used iron) and sewing machine and this is what I did….

As the background on the image is black and as I’m sewing onto a black skirt I didn’t have to be too neat or too close to the actual design.
As you can see I used a close blanket stitch on my machine and went all around the cut out. I also stitched a few lines through the whole thing…

and that’s it – here it is all finished.. I definitely prefer it to the top.
