    Does anyone remember the 60's skirts that were made from fabric that had cats, dogs etc as a border around the bottom? I would love to find fabric like this to make my 4 1/2 yr old gd a skirt. I'm limited on stores around here for fabric have to travel 120 miles round trip just to go to Hancock Fabrics. When Wal Mart stopped selling fabrics in our area it makes us travel to Jackson or Nashville for fabric.

    I'm in the same boat. I do a lot of fabric shopping on line. You might try google for border prints.

    Could you make the skirt, and then add a strip of a border print around the bottom? I think it would be darling for a little girl. i.e. These are bears, but you can understand what I mean. http://www.fabric.com/ProductDetail....b-565fd8a58cae

    I'll try to remember to look in my stash. I might have one with Scotty dogs if I didn't give it to my sister.

    Hmmm, that strip idea might work. I wish I had the one that I had also the poodle skirt. Wow, that's telling how old i'm getting along with bobby socks and saddle shoes

    Last week while in walmart I was loking through the pattern book I saw a pattern to do the poodle skirts and other kinds of animals. Hope that help

    I'm chucking here--a long time ago a neighbor of my grandparents bought similar fabric for a skirt for her daughter. The daughter didn't like it so Joyce gave it to my grandfather (yes grandfather, a retired farmer) and he made a small quilt for my little sister. Now affectionately known as her "doggie" blanket, my sis has this memory of our grandfather. Thanks for bringing back to mind my GF's white head bent over his treadle sewing machine.
