I came across this square of fabric several times while growing up. As the years passed it moved with us untill a year or two ago when I found it amongst some fabrics and curtains from the old house. Well then, I thought, I’ll have it now that I can sew.
Lo it was in my pile of things to sew when my mum was over. She smiled and touched it, remembering she bought the fabric when our family dog was a puppy to make a bed for him.
Our old dog had a long happy life and died aged 15 years some time ago! It was decided then I would name the skirt in his memory.
What a royal doggy bed it would have been. Now it’s a royal pencil skirt welcome for any new family pet to have a nap on (preferably while I’m wearing it.)!
