Between working and feeling exhausted after work, I haven’t gotten much sewing done lately, but that all changed today! I followed the Lesley Circle Skirt How To for this creation and I’m super excited with the result. I used some gray fabric that I found at Scrap in San Francisco for under a dollar and a belt buckle purchased in a 75 cent grab bag. The instructions in the how to were easy to follow and it didn’t take long to complete the whole project. The hem of the skirt is such a large circle though that I felt like I was sewing for ages. I think I’ll spend the rest of the afternoon twirling around in my new skirt.
Gray cotton, one sew on snap, and a gold belt buckle.
