Double Brushed Poly Dress to Skirt Hack with Jessica of Genwin Design Co.

Hello!  I’m so happy to be back on the Raspberry Creek Fabrics Blog!  Today I am sharing a spring-inspired make using some double brushed poly from the Club Fabrics line!

Daisies are my favorite flowers, so when I saw this sage green painted daisy fabric, I knew I needed it for a new skirt!  Despite still being in the middle of winter here in the New England area, I really wanted something to help me get in a spring state of mind.  This print did exactly that and then some!

I am usually drawn toward solids for myself, but these daisies spoke to me and I am truly obsessed!  The print is so sweet and subtle, which is a good way to experiment with prints if you are more of a solids-lover like I am.

I decided not to use a skirt pattern, but a dress pattern and hack it to be a skirt.  I love the Sonia Estep Designs Lily dress so much, even though gathering is one of my least favorite sewing techniques.  I used the dramatic high-low version of the skirt with pockets and added a waistband to fit my waist and it really is such a sweet little skirt!

I paired my new skirt with a ready-to-wear shirt, knotted at the waist, and some of my favorite Converse shoes, but I still felt it was missing something…

Twist headband to the rescue!  I decided to use the little fabric I had left to create a twist headband and it really completed the look!  I used a tutorial on youtube to create the headband and it was so quick and easy.  I’m going to be using so many RCF scraps for twist headbands in the future!

Thank you for reading!  I would love it if you would follow my sewing journey on Instagram at Genwin Design Co.

I think we both know that when it comes to adorable fabrics for kiddos, Raspberry Creek Fabrics is beyond compare. It’s totally easy to make coordinating pieces or capsule wardrobes, their prints are AH-dorable, and the CLUB cotton jersey and French terry are great bases for kiddos. I think sewing for the kids in your life is absolutely lovely — I try to do it as often as I can. But here are a few reasons why you might consider sewing for yourself and with RCF fabrics, too. I’m also including one of my favorite “grown-up” makes that shows that RCF really does have fabric options for everyone, kids and adults alike.
