My skirt

October 25, 2012


Photos of me don't feature highly on my blog...I mostly sew for my kids but have decided to start trying to sew a bit more for myself too (if I can find the time).  This is me in a skirt I made this week. 


I didn't use a pattern - just traced it from a skirt I have and made it shorter and added these cool pockets.  The idea was inspired by this skirt I have pinned on one of my boards.
 
The stretch denim is from The Fabric Store and is nice and comfy.  I am vowing to wear more skirts and dresses this spring and summer instead of my staple outift - jeans and fitted stretch top!
 
Linking up here today.

  1. Gorgeous Suz! I'd love to sew a few things for myself but I have no confidence. My body shape has changed so much since I had my kids that I'm intimidated just shopping for clothes, so making them is even scarier. Love the skirt though, it looks great!

  2. Looks great Suz - really flattering! I bought the Amy Butler Barcelona Skirt pattern last season and am working up the courage to attack it and hopefully end up with something wearable - fingers crossed. : )

  5. You did a great job and it looks fabulous.
    Stretch denim sounds very comfy -I'm a bit like you I tend to live in jeans and tshirts, oh well, they are practical.
