For some reason yesterday I had the urge to make a skirt. It didn't pan out how I panned but ended up making two skirts both for my sister and myself. One of the patterns I made was done by altering the size 12 block and the one made for me was doesn't by making a skirt block to my measurements. I elasticated the waist to make it easier to fit and that;s what was available at the time and machine the hem line keeping the consistency of a high street skirt format. I think the fabric makes the simple skirt look more interesting, don't you think?

I could have used a more couture way of fastening the skirt but I was only trialing out a simple sample to see if it was wearable, but if I were to do it again I would use a stretchy fabric so it would be easier to get on the hips. Agree?

  1. Stretchy fabric would have been good, but the skirts look fine to me!

    Thats amazing that you can do that in your spare time - I wish I could make skirts so easily!

    Hope you've had a lovely weekend :))
