My birthday was on Saturday. What did I do? Made myself a skirt. That's my idea of fun ;)
After I made the skirt, I rifled through my dresser and closet to try and find a shirt to go with it.
Couldn't really find one I liked. So I went to the Gap (all alone-ahhhh) and found this striped shirt. I hope I don't look early 20th century prisoner in it. I love stripes ;)
The picture below isn't fabulous. We were running to church and my husband loves this spot to take pictures despite the glorious sunshine glaring into our eyes. I look pretty evil and Ella looks like she's giving it 75%. It actually looks like she's going to puke. Oh well. At least I got a shot :)
This is the second wearable item made for myself. I've always been scared to try after a tunic I attempted to make ended up looking like a moo-moo. Lots of hours and fabric later it sits in my fabric pile waiting to be re-born.
I started the skirt by using the tutorial from this site except I knew that I wanted mine to be fuller, so I added 6 more inches to the width. It ended up being too short so I added a 3 inch strip to the bottom which I really like the look of so I'm glad that I erred on the short side the first go around.
I had just enough to make my miss Ella one as well. And I made her a navy scarf. So cute.
This skirt is so easy even the most novice sewer can make. The time consuming part is pulling the elastic (my nemesis) through. Thanks for visiting today :) !
