Finished Ginger

Hello all,

As promised some pictures of my Ginger. Sorry they are not that great, I been wearing it all day at a wedding, and she is a little wrinkled now ! I wanted shots in the day, but it just didnt happen. Ill try get some better snaps of it tomorrow to show you. I basically got up at the crack of dawn this morning to hem her and serge the hem. I must say I LOVE MY NEW SERGER !!!

I love this skirt, but I am going to need to sort the waistband - its too big around the top and is irritating me.

But - more importantly no one said, wow your skirt looks a bit home made. In fact one lady was giving it the eye in a 'oooo I like you' kind of way !  Perfect !

So, all in all pretty pleased with my first attempt at grown up dress making ! I really do like this outfit.

Now I have finished one garment, I can think about what to make next !!  Exciting !!

Hope you have all had great weekends.

  1. Fantastic! YAY! Can't wait to see what you make next!

  2. Thanks Debi ! I am not sure the pictures do it justice, but I really am pleased with it. And now things can only improve, right ? :-) Looking forward to seeing which Gatsby outfit you choose and make up !!

  3. Yes, lovely skirt. That's the sort of skirt I would find and fall in love with in Laura Ashley. You did good girl!

  4. Thanks Karima ! :-) I totally LOVE this skirt ! The fabric was furnishing fabric and probably not meant for sewing skirts, but that's one of the joys of sewing for me - finding a fabric I like and doing what I like with it ! I lined it with a an old sheet which feels like well worn suede against the skin. This was my first real 'me made' garment, and its one I LOVE ALOT ! x
