I have been making skirts from this lovely book.
It has a very pleasingly retro look about it, I love the drawings...
It shows you how to cut your own simple pattern based on your measurements, so the skirt fits PERFECTLY.It's not as difficult as it sounds -Really!
I've just finished making one in an embroidered denim that I bought in Malaga.
The cat is not strictly part of the process but they do like to be photographed...
I made a plain black one before Christmas with circles applique Boden style.
At the end of last summer I whizzed up a couple in cheerful cotton that I bought on Market stalls.
I really like the ricrac hems on these.
I'm on the look out now for new spring fabrics, I fancy something in purple but I think it must be out of fashion as I can't find anything yet. Maybe in England...
Have a nice weekend, we have Scout Parade tomorrow morning. What fun !!
