Day 38


I know just the thing you need, boys - another skirt!!

I cut off my head in the photo because I looked like a FREAK.

This skirt was inspired by something I saw on sew_loli last week.  I had lots of fun taking measurements, making a pattern, and working out how it works.

This flowery material is - another - old sheet.  I love the print.  The sheet was a bit worn in the middle, and there wasn't much, so some of my panels had to be cut the other way.  Hence, the front of the skirt is thick at the top and thin at the bottom, but the back of the skirt is thick at the bottom and thin at the top!  The plain blue fabric is plain blue fabric.

There was only one hiccough when I sewed it all up and it didn't fit - that was soon fixed.

This project was really fun.  I'm really happy with the result, too.  I'm going to a morning tea party on Sunday and I plan to wear this.  Yay!

Only two more posts before the end of my (failed) thing a day!  What's it going to be?  ANOTHER SKIRT MAYBE?

Ahhh ha ha ha ha ha ha HAAAA!

*thunder* *lightning*

Note:  In this picture I'm wearing one of my petticoats.  This one, actually.

  1. Yay! Another skirt. I'm glad you enjoyed making the skirt and I also like the print. You looked brilliant with the skirt on Saturday.

    I don't think your thing-a-day is a failure. You've worked very hard to create all these awesome artworks.

    I'm sorry that I haven't been commenting very frequently, but I still try visit your blog every day or every second day. Although I know you meant it sarcastically on Saturday, at least I think you did. Hmm...
