It was a lovely and pattern to follow, but I was making 4 skirts at once in a production line type process, so it took longer than it would if you were just doing one. And the reason I did four was I did one for myself (of course!) and one for a friend for their birthday.
And while my friend's and mine aren't finished yet (sigh!) Shannon and Leah's skirts will be on their way to them in the mail later today! Hooray!!
And I asked them both if they minded if I blogged about their finished skirts, and they didn't mind so....
Shannon's Shoe Skirt
Leah's Cherry Skirt
After I tied them on my headless helper to take photos I realised that they really needed buttons to prevent 'Marilyn Moments', so I then set about doing that. I put 5 buttons down the front of each skirt - here are the buttons I chose:
I was particularly excited about the pink ones - they are reproduction confetti lucite ones... I may have purchased quite a few of them...
Then this morning I packaged them up to be put into the post later on today - keep your eyes out girls!
PS. How awesome is my sticky tape dispenser!!!
And now the way is cleared for a weekend of Mad Men dressmaking! More updates on that next week.
Have you got a productive and fun weekend planned?
