A Skirt... Made by Me!



Well, you wouldn't believe this, but I actually sewed again! I mean, I actually sewed something, and it worked! :O  I'm good at sewing things, like a ridiculous green skirt that was supposed to fit my sister, and it turns out that it fits neither of us. So it lies unfinished. Or a polka dot shirt that was too big on the shoulders, that I'm too lazy to fix and finish. So it lies unfinished. Or a...

But this time... I was quite determined to make something, and finish it. So, I decided to make the simplest skirt I could think of. I drew up a pattern with this very helpful pattern drafter. And I found a scrap of fabric in the cupboard that my mum had no use for, (and that I had been admiring for ages.) And I made a skirt, and I finished it the same night I started. And it fits me, and I'm very happy. :D I think I shall make another one.


 Do you like the fabric? The design? What have you been sewing lately?

When you comment:

1. My day will be brighter, my face smiling, and my heart blessed.

2. I’m likely to immediately go and explore your blog (if you have one) to find out more of your amazingness, and return the blessing.

3. I will then attempt to craft a response to you that will somehow fail to convey how much I truly appreciate your thoughtfulness and kindness. I’m grateful for every word of encouragement you give, and don’t be afraid to share some constructive criticism also; there’s always more to learn. In short: thank-you! :)
