So we are almost mid week !! Yay !! and I have most of next week off work, and the sun is STILL shining !! Whats not to like ?!?
Anyway I wanted to get this skirt posted up !
I love it sooooo much. I created it out of extra heavy duty thick curtain fabric
(ooooh the shame !! :-)) )
and I underlined it in white cotton, and then added a white bemberg (I love this stuff !!) lining.
I made it back along when the weather was still so wintry and I wanted a skirt that was winter appropriate in terms of warmth, but stuck 2 fingers up at the whole extended winter thing we had going on. This with all its layers and thickness but cheery visage did just the trick !!
I had to hand sew the button hole (again) as my Singer was not up for the job (I sense a trend !!). The zipper I hand picked. I didn't use any trim on this hem as its heavy enough and didn't really need it.
As the fabric was a remnant I had less than a meter to play with, so no choice on pattern placement, but I care not for I love the vision of a summer meadow so ! I needed to use a coordinating colour fabric from my stash as I didn't have enough to make a waistband. I used every last millimeter of that fabric.
Not a great deal more to say about the pattern, other than I love it !! I will be making many, many, many more of these !! You must make one too !! I insist !! And then share with me :-))
