Summer is coming...

Everywhere I look I can't help but notice every one's skirts. I think that I could go all this summer in just skirts - if I could. I think that I thought to highly of my skirt making skills, having a 'it can't be that hard' sort of attitude towards making them. But as I have started to try it for myself I realise how wrong I was. It takes skill to making skirts and steady hands (putting bias binding on things looks easy but it is far from).

This skirt is one of the my favourites that I have made. I can not only wear it out but it is also casual enough for every day wear.

Thoroughly enjoying themselves

Posing for the camera

I actually made the skirt a week ago but I had to wait for my tri-pod which my sister A picked up for me after the silly shop still (after 3 weeks) hadn't posted to me.

Happy sewing!


  1. like all things megan, you get better, faster the more you do. (you should see how fast i can unpick lol) i have and industrial sewer and it has a bias binding foot, just thread the bias strips thru, and the edge and waa-laa all attached. you will improve with practice, just think how many people your age cant sew at all, how cool is that, that you can make your own clothes, and from repurposed fabrics too. That my dear is something to be proud of.

  2. Love the skirt - would love to see your tutorials . . .

  3. Thanks for the encouragement Brendie!

    I will start to put up tutorials once I get more confident. Maybe in a couple of weeks.
