The skirt I bought along (wore to the event at Helston Folk Museum) was chosen because it is a favourite of mins. I think that I've had it about 15 years and the fabric has softened along with the colour. I love this skirt. It is something that I wear when I feel good, or want to feel good and comfortable. Over the years I've often thought about using this skirt for patchwork – but couldn't bring myself to cut it up.
