I made a skirt....yep you read that right!

 Hello everyone, I hope you had a nice Easter break and managed to get some crafting done.

At the start of the Easter break I went round to my friends place (who is SO much more experienced than I in sewing stuff) and decided to have a go at making a lined skirt (gulp!!)

I made a rooky mistake....I bought the amount of fabric it said on the pattern!!  I was soon shown how to get more out of my fabric and I now have enough to make 2 skirts!!!

About 4 hrs later I had a lined skirt, complete with a nice and tidy zip (unlike a skirt I made a couple of years ago where the zip was at an angle and sticking out of the top of the skirt!!) .

Ta da!!  My own skirt.....daisy's with pink, yellow and pink splatters on a black background.  A fraction of the cost if I bought one (a big thanks to my friend...she made it SO much easier)

Now, I just need to try and make one on my own (gulp again!!)

Happy Crafting




  1. Well done! It looks Great!

  2. Looks lush! I find skirts the hardest thing to buy, length wise obviously is so difficult. Perhaps I should try making my own! Take care Zo xx

    1. Zoe, yes you should, or at the least take the hem up; on a shop bought one-I am a convert (until I loose my temper making the next one!!)
