Ta-Dah!!!!


Well, i made it - first ever skirt. I think i'd give it a 5/10 - i know the mistakes that are hidden and putting the zip in was an experience (not too much swearing tho!).

i know you can't see it, but i hate the lining - the pattern recommended using muslin, but the lady in the fabric shop said anti-static lining would be better, so i bowed to her better knowledge. However, next time, and i think there may be a next time, i will use muslin.


Needless to say the fabric is very summery and as it is now lashing down with rain i may not get to wear it very much, but i will wear it!!!

Oooh, it's very pretty - great choice of fabric and it really suits you - or at least the bit we can see of you!

Gina said...

Fabulous! Never mind it being summery... it looks great now with sandals and it will look just as great cheering up sweaters and boots!

Joy said...

Maria it looks great!! I'm absolutely hopeless at making clothes - and zips for me can be terrifying!!! Yay for you .... and I just LOVE the fabric too, do pretty. I think you should just turn up the central heating and wear it now ;o).
Hugs,
Joy :o)

I agree with Gina - in the darker autumn/winter it will still look lovely with boots.

Well done you - I can't remember the last time I made something to wear!

This has turned out great. I really like the fabric too. A polycotton lining would work well too and nice against the skin. How about a wrap around skirt next? I shall email you the pattern number that I used and you can make it in two lengths and I think it is idiot proof because this idiot has made two of them!
