George, South Af...
I wanted to make a striped skirt, but nowhere could I find the striped material I was looking for. So I created my own material by stitching together panels of blue and grey before cutting the skirt. I had plans for a real fancy skirt with lining and zip – but in the end the need for a quick skirt prevailed and it turned out a self-drafted skirt with elastic only! I have plenty of this self-created material left, and I’m considering to make a top. All in all, it did not quite turn out as I envisioned, thus I don’t know yet whether I will wear my sporty skirt that often :P
