Stories start way before you see the final outcome. This project started a year ago. I thought it would be better to help make it easy for you, by giving the patterning details first, after which I would share my completed project. That didn't happen. So finally, here you are, the Rainbow skirt inspired by a Zimmermann design I found on Far-fetch last year (2021).
I purchased the linen fabrics from Sew Much Fabric. I was happy with the weight. It was easy to gather once the stabilizer was added to the edges. I washed all colors together, using a can of Coca-Cola to soften the fabric. Since the full skirt would be cleaned as one, I added the tide color catcher for dealing with any bleeding.
