Just another quick make to share today. I’ve made another super-fast elasticated waist skirt! Yeah, I know it’s not the most exciting thing in the world, but at least they’re fast additions to my handmade wardrobe!
So I bought this gorgeous fabric on Saturday during the SewBrum meet up. I just loved the colours. I’m not terribly musical, although I did play the clarinet at school!
One of my friends was having her baby shower yesterday, as a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan (such a lovely idea!) so I decided to make this skirt to wear to that.
Nothing terribly exciting to share about the construction of this, it’s just French seams, hem and elasticated waitband, but I think on a busy fabric like this this style of skirt really works. I’d love to have a wardrobe full of awesome dress like Roisin, but they’re just not the kind of thing I could wear everyday whilst my girls are small, so skirts like this do the job. Actually I was talking to Rachel about this kind of thing on Saturday. Like she said, it’s far more rewarding to make something you’re going to wear. I could have a wardrobe full of awesome dresses, but they’d rarely see the light of day!
So here it is, the Musical Instrument Skirt:
Not the best photo, but it was starting to get dark. So here’s a close up:
