A Skirt!

First there was this.


Then there was this!


Thanks to Daisy's sewalong I've definitely been bitten by the sewing bug. Loved making this and I can see more to come! (Although next time I must make sure I wipe the mirror before taking any pictures!)

Meanwhile - look what came through the letterbox this morning .......


Oh my goodness Daisy Jones - look what you've started!

Happy sewing,
Jane

  3. The skirt looks great on you! I am living in one room while we build our house (on our own-so it's slow going) and I tried to dig out my sewing machine, but couldn't. My MIL had given me her sewing machine and I tried to give it away, twice, because I already had one. Well, this winter I got it out and I got the manual out and I love her machine! So glad I didn't give it away. Haven't got the nerve up to try clothes, but I think I will. Why not?

  8. This skirt looks like a pencil skirt yet is described as an A line. It looks that way on other people's versions too. So, too straight and tight for me!

  9. That looks very impressive, I must say! I've never made any actual clothes (apart from ones for toy rabbits to wear) but since watching GBSB I entertain ideas of making such pretty things. It's lovely. x

  20. I think you're skirt is really lovely. It fits you beautifully and love that gorgeous paisley fabric you used.
    I joined in with Daisy's sew-along too - can't believe I actually made something I can wear AND learnt how to insert a zip.
    I am currently making my first dress!!!

    p.s. never mind dirty mirrors ;)
