Toile de Jouy. You might have seen me already wearing it on this post or here, because it's a pattern I truly love. I don't know, it has those tiny motifs and scenes with fruits, child and flowers which make it really cute. And it reminds me so much of England and France!

Doing some research around, I found a little history about the fabric. Do you know that Toile de Jouy is mostly used on interior design, for decoration and tapestry? And that it receives its name from the town where it was created, Jouy (France) around 1760? Now it's made on a wide variety of monochromes but, when it was created the only colors available for this fabric were blue and red.
We found some yards of the fabric on a DIY shopping centre, and immediately thought about making an statement skirt to take advantage of the drawings on it. Actually, mum sewed it, I just helped with pins and some measurements. It took about two days of sewing, but it wasn't really difficult at all. No patterns or lot of sewing skills to sew it!

Then we found this picture of Dita Von Teese, who always masters this kind of vintage pieces, and we realized she was wearing a really similar Toile de Jouy dress in blue. Such an inspiration!

Did you know about this pattern? Do you design or sew your own clothing pieces? Would you like to see a DIY tutorial on how to make this midi skirt?
