In my creative space this week I have been making this skirt for me.
When I was in Melbourne last week I tried on some clothes but was so uninspired that I thought I'd better make some of my own.
This skirt is the start of my new summer wardrobe.
The pattern is from Stitch magazine.
The fabric was bought from the Daylesford market a few years back. It had a sticker on it that said vintage fabric. I adore the colour and the print but I've been too scared to cut into it, until now. The buttons are some odds and ends found in my tin from goodness knows where.
Unfortunately I didn't realise that I didn't have enough fabric until I was cutting out the bum piece and so I had to use two smaller pieces.
I really love how it turned out but I think I might try it again in a plainer fabric to show off the pattern of the skirt more. I also think I had better iron the creases into it before I wear it off the farm.
So what's cooking in your space today?
