Well after yesterday’s post about my WIPs, I decided it was high time I finished something. This skirt has been sitting on my WIP rack just waiting for me to hem and add elastic. So while the children played happily after school, I pulled it out and pinned it up, then today’s nap time saw me have just enough time to finish it off and photograph while the girl slept and the little boy pottered nearby with his camera. It was inspired by a skirt of my daughter’s from tillytom, in my favourite fabric range of the moment, Vintage Modern by Bonnie & Camille. I have had a mention or two of a tutorial for this easy summer skirt, is anyone interested if I put one together?
The skirt is a little large on my around the waist/hips, but it is intended for a friend who is a size larger than I, and so it should fit perfectly. And of course, it comes complete with the perfect amount of twirl.
Today has been a lovely mix of productive housework, playing and reading and singing with my babies, having sword fights, and sewing. Just the way we like it. The children are stirring and it’s time to take off the crafter hat and put on the mummy hat ready for afternoon shift, and hopefully some dolls quilt sewing tonight. Downhill run to the weekend is officially on. Thanks for playing nice, Wednesday.
