Why this project?
1)When I decided to start this blog, I had traveled on the world wide web to look at a few blogs. Then, I clicked on links and links and links and I ended up on GREAT blogs. I discovered that sewing was also paying attention to details.
2) I got really inspired. I am also currently going to a few job interviews and in need of corporate kind of clothing.
3) I watched Tim Gunn’s TV show and it struck me that I didn’t have any pencil skirt, one of his essentials.
4) In the last BURDASTYLE I purchased, they actually had one in the plus size department, that could hide my fatty bits (september 2010).
SO, I HAD TO DO THIS ONE!
I wanted to do it properly, especially as I got a GREAT fabric for it, way more expensive then usual. I is wool, and a little stretchy. A dark grey. For the lining, I chose a deep dark red color. The contrast is so so so nice. I have some leftover that I kept for later to make a cute little vest.
You can see way much more on my blog: QuirkyPrettyCute ! Pictures of the first steps, and of technical bits and everything.
