Summer, is that you? + My first skirt.
Holy moly, the weather is insane today! It's a good thing I spent most of yesterday at Sew Love Tea Do making my first (and very summery) skirt!
I'm not really known to wear crazy prints or pink, so this is a pretty out-there skirt for me, but I love it!
I found this fabric for a steal at Fabric-a-brac a couple of weeks ago, and there might be enough left for a crazy top.
Things I learnt yesterday:
Pattern matching - the floral stripes match all the way around - good thing there was a stack of fabric.
How to insert a zip. This is tricky, but I survived.
Darts are important. And not as hard as I thought they would be.
Ironing/pressing. I'm ashamed to say I don't own an ironing board. I will be purchasing one today because ohmygod pressing makes everything look awesome.
I am so excited about this skirt. It will probably be worn every day for a week, with stockings for work and without at home as the weather gets warmer! Big thanks to Sarah at Sew Love for all the assistance and excellent New Look pattern from her stash!
