skirting around

It feels like ages since i have made anything new to wear and it is beginning to show in my wardrobe i fear. So last week i decided it was time to get back to some dressmaking.

I found some lovely blue grey fabric in The Stitchery at The Riverside in Lewes. It is quite light weight but hangs well and i really fell for the colour. it was a bit pricey so i only bought 60cm of it but managed well enough. Thrifty!

The skirt i chose to do was this old faithful 1978 a-line pocketed design. I have a couple of these and really like them. Easy to make and easy to wear.

i like to put my hands in the pockets


Yours, bird in a skirt,
