OWOP - Bit-of-Splice Skirt

I finished it!

Here's my lovely A-line skirt made from the Splice skirt pattern, embellished with a chenilled circle of fabric.  I simply cut 2 squares of fabric, aid them on top of one another and sewed lines diagonally across it so I could cut between them on the bias and after washing the fabric would chenille itself.  It looks like it could do with another wash or two to make it more fluffy :)  Using a side plate I drew out a circle on my square and attached it to the skirt, using a blanket stitch on my machine.  You could use a zig-zag instead.

An arty one showing shadow, blue sky, wisteria and the funky retro binding I found in a vintage shop in Adelaide!
I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.  That's 6 versions I've made from the one pattern, not a bad effort considering the week I've had  :)

If you want to have a go at making your own splice skirt, you can get the pattern here.
