A couple of weeks ago I applied to take part in this competition on sew mama sew, I didn't get chosen as a competitor but it inspired me to try to sew my first skirt. I really did want to try and and use a pattern but, well, I just can't so I just cut into the material and hoped for the best.
I have to say it was much much more successful than I thought it would be. I am not so keen on the fabric I thought it would look better but I did line the skirt and put pockets in, pockets are the best all skirts and dresses should have them. The fit is great, I forgot how comfortable well fitting clothes are. As soon as I wore it I vowed to always make my own clothes, I doubt this will actually happen but I love the thought so I will try for a bit at least.
Lots of love
