I’ve been dying to make Osaka by Seamwork Mag (from their March 2015 issue find it here) but I couldn’t find the right fabric for it. Who knew I would stumble upon just what I needed at the thrift store?! I usually look in the skirts for long or too big ones. I use them for either the fabric or I alter them to my size. When I saw this skirt I knew it would be perfect for the pattern. (Do ya’ll remember Parisian’s?)
The Pattern: Osaka from Seamwork Magazine
The Fabric: Wool blend from second-hand skirt; Black wool from Jo-Anns
Modifications: In my version I swapped the buttons for large snaps.
Styling & Versatility: So far I’ve worn it with simple tees that can match either side. As for versatility, that’s a no brainer! It works two different ways and the color makes it simple to wear.
Overall Review: I’ve worn it several times so far and I absolutely LOVE it. It’s perfect for combining “scrap” fabric pieces
