Treadlette Tuesday: Embroidered Chambray Skirt

Hi Treadle fans, Elizabeth here, sharing my pick of the week!

When I saw this embroidered denim at the store, I was instantly in love! I knew I wanted a quick, easy garment. A skirt would be perfect!

I used McCall's 7439 (view D). To avoid cutting too much embroidery, I placed the center back seam on a fold instead, then moved the zipper to the left side seam. 2 1/4" yards allowed me to place the pieces cross-grain along the border with no margin!

I didn't make the included belt; instead I made a sash from coordinating shot cotton from my home stash.

This skirt is currently on display at the store if you need a closer look!
