I literally JUST finished this…at approximately 3am! :D
If I like something, I often try to figure it out and make it myself.
I saw this gorgeous vintage skirt, but it was unfortunately not my size and so I set about making it myself, in a spring colour and fabric. I was just looking for an excuse to make a red skirt and this design suit it perfectly!
I learned a few more things on the way, as I always do with each new project, but over all, despite the few flaws it does have, I absolutely ADORE this skirt.
The bow is attached with a brooch pin, in case I feel like wearing just the simple skirt. It has a side zipper and I closed the waist band with 2 snap buttons.
Its made my mum proud – a master with a machine and maker of all my childhood frocks! – and thats enough for me! :D
Next time, I’ll use a hidden zipper though!
