Anyway, to console myself I had to make another one of my successes.
Yes, it's another bold patterned pencil skirt. After the previous disaster it's good to get on with something that you know you'll like. So, I'd had my eye on a this lovely bold fabric in John Lewis that suddenly went on sale for £9 a metre. Bargain! The fabric is a 97% cotton 3 % spandex mix and it's lovely to work with. There is some stretch in it but I treated it as a woven fabric for this skirt. I also like re-using patterns, I know some people don't but the second time you make something it always fits better and this is no exception. It's like you just get to know the pattern better.
What do you think?
|Rather proud of this zip even if I do say so myself|
|Proof that it's lined!|
