The self indulgent sewing continues...
This is my favourite skirt pattern - so easy! And fits great. I love the wide waistband and back pleat... looks good for easy office wear. And the best part? No zip!! Obviously you need to use fabrics with a bit of stretch, but these days fabrics with a stretch are easy to find. So the skirt just pulls on and is so comfy.
What do you think of the fabric? I picked it up at a closing down sale in a local fabric store (Carmel's fabrics) for about $4 a metre. Kind of a weird winter theme. I liked the colours and the pattern definitely makes for a unique skirt. Although it is quite distinct, I don't want to wear it too often with the risk of people saying "she's in THAT skirt again"!! Ha Ha. So I had better keep making some more clothes ;)
It's Melbourne Cup day here today which means a public holiday. We are just relaxing around the house until soon I will be taking the girls to Southland to get their hair cut! Saskia has decided she wants to cut off her long hair... we will see how we go, she may change her mind ;)
