Description

My first time sewing EVER EVER EVER!! I read somewhere I was supposed to use cotton since I’m a newbie, but I saw this fabric and couldn’t resist. My hubs thinks it’s awesome. I added pleats to the front of the skirt to make the fabric drape properly and added 10 inches to the skirt length. I’m a mom, ya know? But it makes me feel pretty.

    Welcome to the addiction!

    You did a lovely job. I had to lengthen mine too! That’s what I love so much about sewing, the ability to customize your style, not have it dictated by someone else!

    That’s your first creation?! That is pretty fabulous. Congrats on your success! I like the green print you choose and the alterations you made to make it fit you perfectly!
