I MADE A SKIRT.
It took an extreme amount of faffing but this is par for the course where me and crafty things are concerned. I spent most of Sunday blankly staring at some pattern pieces on the floor and trying to get my head round how it would work. I failed. The fabric wasn't the right shape and size and it was all far too difficult. So I went rogue, ditched that pattern, made up the skirt from my favourite Simplicity 2444 frock and attached it to the waistband of the skirt pattern I was considering originally. It all worked out rather well in the end. And this was the first time I've ever done a proper waistband or mixed two patterns together so yay me!
I feel like I've done the marvellous fabric a little bit of justice. It totally deserved to be turned into something excellent. Do you want to see some closeups? Of course you do!
Red shoes make me happy.
