Caterpillar skirt the Mabel-Jade mish·mash

Hi my dears,

I made a skirt, result of a mish·mash of patterns, I call it the Caterpillar. The Caterpillar is a mish·mash of Mabel by Colette and Jade by Paprika Patterns. I needed to fill up the gap in my wardrobe with solid black and blue skirts.

To add an element of interest to my beloved Mabel pattern, the diagonals from Jade seemed appropriate and lovely.

I modified Jade’s front piece it to fit the size and shape of the center front pannel of Mabel (version 3).

Here is the result:

Yeeeiiiiiii!!! Makes me think of caterpillars and butterflies all day!!


I LOVE it!!! ❤

What do you think? Have you mixed different patterns to make something new?

❤ M
