I made a skirt. I can't remember the last time I sewed something for myself to wear. Clothes are not my forte. I used an easy pattern that my mom made a skirt for me from this summer. Looked easy enough...
I really messed up. I don't know exactly what I did, but it fits completely different than the other skirt. It does fit, though, so that's good. Actually, I really like that it's more fitted, so you could say that it doesn't matter, but I'm still curious what I did wrong!
The fabric is from an estate sale. I don't even know what type it is, but it really had a lot of body, which I liked. I added a stripe of twill tape to the bottom, which probably emphasized the uneven hem, but oh well. Some freehand machine sewing on cream felt made the little flower that I stitched on. I made a brooch to match. I like how it turned out. I even got new shoes to go with - I needed them anyway - and chose the cute over the more-comfortable.
**Oh, and I know I didn't give you a very good full shot of the skirt - I felt kind of stupid asking someone to do it for me so I just took these myself. Maybe next time I wear it? It's made of 8 panels, though, and it flares at the bottom.
**Speaking of church clothes.... Princess woke up this morning, brushed teeth, brushed her hair and put a clip in it by herself, and got herself dressed - without being asked. That's pretty cool, and she was so proud of herself - but what she was wearing...! She had on a swedish-style black/white sweater with an olive green/gold velvety tiered shirt. I had one of her new outfits all layed out for her, but she wanted to choose her own. If we were staying home I wouldn't care - but I did make her change her shirt for church. Bad Mom Moment?
