I bought this faux leather at Joann the other day to make a short leather skirt but when I got home it looked kinda cheap and boring so I had a brilliant idea to paint it..lol I had some fabric paint in my craft drawer and decided to give it a try. I used the scraps to test it first and to my surprise it worked! I made a video (below) to show you how I did it and how EASY it is to do. I love the finished product so much.
Here is a picture of the before black and the after. I used Scribbles 3D Paint in an iridescent brown and kitchen sponge lightly damp.
Here I am wearing the finished skirt
Pattern ReviewPattern Description: Jacket and Skirt
Pattern Sizing: Size 10 (had to grade down quite a bit)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I suppose
Were the instructions easy to follow? The skirt is really simple so I just reviewed quickly for the sake of review.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the jacket actually which I plan on making soon but I used the skirt pattern for an idea I had to pain the faux leather I got at Joann.
Fabric Used: Faux leather from Joann, hand painted with fabric paint :)
