Birthday Skirt

For my brithday last weekend I wanted a skirt that was both stylish and comfortable. I did a little inspiration searching and grabbed a few idea from here and there until I colaborated a amasterpiece in my head.

The ladies at work gave me a gift voucher for Spotlight (making this skirt not recycled unfortunately) and I went on a spree. I bought 4 new fabrics and couldn't wait to get started.

This skirt took me the majority of Friday afternoon to complete. It was a little tricky working out how I was going to go about making it - adding bias binding onto lace was no easy feat - but in the end it didn't take as long as I thought it would.

I swear I shall get better at taking pictures once I get my tri-pod. This is the finished project, it was way better contructed than my last project and I am so proud of it. My friends were putting orders in asking me to make some for them. I do have enough material left to make at least two more but next time I think that I shall dye the lace and cotton to make it different.

It looks a little bit like a cupcake but that was sort-of what I was going for. Very feminine and light.


  1. It looks very cute on you and you did a great job!

  2. Well done Megan - and happy birthday! Can't wait to see what's next...

  3. I really like this skirt. Well done. Cheers, Wendy
