I can hardly believe it: I finished my first skirt!
I love it! I love the colours, the fabric...and I loved making it. (And I am pleased to report that it is the same floral pattern on the front and the back, thank-you Grandma!)
And while digging out summer tops to match with it, I realised my Blossoming Bag matches it splendidly!
I would have been lost without the fab-a-roony tutorials from Miss Lazy Daisy Jones – you are an amazing seamstress, m’dear, see you on GBSB next year? I know I speak for a number of us...
I’ve been bitten by the bug; I’m already snooping around Pinterest and various web sites for my next pattern. Perhaps another skirt, maybe a dress...or shall I just wait to see what Grandma sends to me?
And to prove it fits, here I am wearing my skirt, photo snapped by Bunny:
All five feet of me, wearing a simple pink summer tee and ballet flats. That’s my new linen summer hat, I’m a little bit in love with it...
Thank you to everyone who left a comment on my last post, you are all so supportive and encouraging, it really boosted my confidence! Now I must change from this skirt to my gardening clothes, the sun is shining and there is work to be done...
Have a lovely weekend!
