Description

I have a new skirt! It’s new because I finished it just a few weeks ago, although it has been two years since I started sewing it. Yeah, I’m not sure how that happened. I’m not really prone to UFOs, and I rarely ever start something new if I hadn’t already finished what I was working on. Not a multitasking type :) In my defense, I did finished practically everything in a first try, and then the skirt was sitting in my closet for two years, waiting for me to go and buy buttons. Again – in my defense, I was looking for them (ahem.. you know, like every now and then :) ) but I couldn’t find the right ones. From the start I had this idea that I want large yellow buttons, and few weeks ago I finally found them. Just in time for the heat wave!

The skirt is made with nettevivante’s pattern for scallop button up skirt – which I found to be totally adorable. Plus it’s a freebie! What’s there not to love :)
The fabric is cotton in the most bright shade of pink there is. Obviously, I love pink :) This fabric is a bit difficult to iron and very prone to wrinkling, no matter how much I try to steam it the darn thing remains all crinkled. It was annoying at first but now the look is kinda growing on me..
The skirt is lined, the waistband is finished with the yellow bias tape and the lining is hemmed with some pink eyelet trim, just for the cuteness of it. I also made buttonholes by hand, mainly because my sewing machine refused to that for me. But I do love hand sewing so I didn’t mind :) All in all, it feels good to finally wear this skirt!
