Itch to Stitch Boalsburg Pullover made from me three mens rugby shirts, Mr W was going to charityshop them as they didn't fit anymore. I pattern matched the stripes. This is a great pattern for using up scraps of t-shirt or jumper fabric leftover from other projects too.
Itch to Stitch Boalsburg Pullover in organic french terry, it is the dame fabric but in different colours. The blue is leftover from my Orono, and the light and dark greys are leftover from my Nazare.

Newport Top in french terry I purchased on Minerva. This is an older sizing 00-20. I am working through the fashion fabric I have left, unless it's wovens I can't use it for making gifts, and I don't need many clothes. I really like the neutral colours and the print is not too busy, and I love wearing cotton. Topstitching is zigzagged in Gutermann thread 968.

Jordan Fabrics Tree Skirt (free pattern). I've wanted to make this for a year and finally got round to it! I ordered this vintage coca-cola style Blank Quilting cotton in a January sale and thought Mr W would like it, the large print was perfect for the 10 inch squares in the tree skirt. Finished size approximately 62 inches. I sewed it stitch and flip as suggested, then topstitched the edges and some of the seams, it doesn't need a lot of quilting. Fabrics: Liberty floral, Art gallery fabric birds, Riley Blake santa, blank quilting vintage Christmas, Nikha Bella? floral. The two cream diamonds blend so I probably should have used more of a contrast, but I wanted to use both fabrics. Secured with mini safety pins. I think it looks neater than sewing on ribbons.

I purchased this pattern last year as I like wearing straight or pencil skirts, I sewed up the shaper pocket version and straight waistband. That's all the non itch to stitch pdf's I purchased a while ago, that I still want to wear, sewn up now. Worn with the Chemainus Blouse. Both cottons are supplied by Minerva.
