new skirts...

Yesterday, I made three new skirts in between catching up with my good friend Lianne and watching Revolutionary Road. :)

I used the fantastic pattern that comes with the book 49 Sensational Skirts, that nz floss posted me last year! :)

skirt #3
Added at 9pm, Thursday night...

I like all of them... Skirt #1 was made from an old curtain I picked up from Bo Jumbles, the lining from some fabric I got from my good friend Becca. Skirt #2 was made from a lovely old linen tablecloth I picked up in Christchurch last year (I just couldn't leave it in the shop!) and some really good quality sheeting for the lining. Skirt #3 is made from striped denim and quilting cotton all purchased from Bo Jumbles. So all of them were bargains! :)

What I love about these skirts is that they can be worn many different ways. The opening can be at the back or the front or even to the side! :) Today I wore Skirt #3 and apart from a near undressing at Spotlight when I knelt down to look at fabric - it is fantastic, easy to wear skirt! I even got comments about it!!

Hey they are pretty.
Is it hard to get sizing right? I always struggle with making my own clothes, thanks for the encouragement.

If you would like some upholstery samples email me your postal details:

Great skirts! I think the last one is my favorite.

Hey Girl Ferment,

The pattern in the book is pretty much one size fits all. Although if you were really extreme in size (how do I put that politely?!) You may have to make the pattern smaller or bigger. I am not a small woman and it fitted me perfectly. :)

That book looks like a winner and I do love the fabric in the first skirt.

They are lovely, are they easy to make? Do you have the pattern to share? I can't believe you made 3 in one day! Very impressed :)

I love the last one, too. But my fave pic is the one of you skipping! Love it!
