As promised I can FINALLY show you some pics of my recent addition to the Frankenstein skirt collection. I think this may be version 4 ?! WOWSERS !!
I forewarn you that this post is picture heavy as I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this skirt !
|I don't think I could feel any more smug !|
|Working it !!|
It is amazing what a difference clothes can make to a picture
I guess its cos this skirt makes me feel good
It actually makes me better friends with the camera !
I have not added any vents or slits to these skirts so far, but that all changes in the next skirt I made, which I will share with you later. I used Sunni's tutorial to add a back vent and it worked like a dream. More on that another time.
I only had a remnant of this apple fabric, and as you can see there are large apples on the fabric. Friends I did not wish to look like Eve with an apply lady garden and neither did I want 2 big apples, one planted smack bang in the middle of each butt cheek !
This was an exercise in careful pattern placement with limited fabric, and an exercise which I feel was successful ! Yay !
|No big red backside|
Each time I have Frankensteined the pattern a little more, and now I have it exactly as I like it !
|Channelling my inner Clint Eastwood|
but slightly more chilly !
|Unfortunately I did not wash the trim before application|
it slightly shrank in the wash
|This looks more obvious in the photo than in real life.|
So, as you can probably tell I am overjoyed with my new skirt !
I cant tell you how many people have asked where I got this skirt from ! Ha ! Take that mass production !
In other news Mr P's brother and his wife just had a babba and we are off to visit tomorrow ! Yay ! I cant wait to meet her.
Happy Saturday people,
