Who buys Japanese fabric on holiday in Spain? Who wouldn’t when it’s as irresistible as this!
I mean. Look at that cheeky cat in the middle with the ball of wool. And the smiley yellow one. And the little black one. And the….
I turned this souvenir fabric purchased from Nunoya in Barcelona into a skirt for Felicity.
This is BurdaStyle 05/2019 #112 (or #112burda052019 in instaspeak)
( image source: the previous USA based Burda website that was so good. No point adding the link now. Not happy Burda!)
I added 7 cm to the length and cut the front skirt and yoke on the fold. This omitted the centre front seam and the decorative button tab.
I lined the yoke with a poly/cotton from an old shirt of her fathers.
I covered the end of the zip with a scrap from his shirt too.
It’s very satisfying to recycle like this 😊

I think I would make a special trip to but that fabric – it’s fabulous! The skirt is gorgeous too 😁
Buy not but.
A bit of an easier trip for you!
Rory will be allergic to that skirt!!! Very cute.
You’re too good. I bought the same fabric but kept it for myself !-)
Very nice! I lime your colour way too
That is the most adorable fabric I have ever seen. Now I want to go to Spain. Lucky lucky girl !
It was impossible to resist.
Purrfect fabric for a really cute skirt. Your daughter is a lucky recipient 🐈
lovely! such a great souvenir
Just gorgeous. I’m using the same pattern for a skirt for my daughter but using a Jocelyn Proust piece from Spotlight. Good to see it makes up so nicely and my daughter will be sooo jealous of the cats!
I love Jocelyn Proust prints. They will make an excellent skirt.
Love the plaid facings too!
That’s almost my favourite part.
such a cute print and skirt! Great recycle with the shirt too I also have been Japanese fabric shopping recently, in Tokyo…
Ooooh. That’s the dream!
[…] Who buys rainbow reversible sequin fabric as a souvenir in Bordeaux? This one is a bit harder to explain than buying Japanese cotton in Spain! […]
[…] While I should have just bought the thread and left the fabric behind, I thought Felicity would like the fabric and that it would work as a top to wear with her cat skirt. […]
I spend a fair amount of time thinking about what I’m going to wear and what clothes I want to buy, but I wouldn’t call my style “classy.” Thanks for the advice about sticking with my style and instead find ways to class it up. I love wearing plaid shirts. Instead of pairing them with jeans, I could look for some neutral colored pants and matching shoes.
In addition, I am the propagandist of Chinese style clothes. Chinese clothing, especially the cheongsam I promoted, is also very distinctive and suitable for western women.

This is a wonderful sharing. I will continue to follow your website. Thank you.
