I made TLo a couple of skirts last week. I used a pattern I've used at least three or four times in the past four years or so.
You'd think, wouldn't you, that if I've made this skirt at least four or five times that I'd have something interesting to say about it... right? Something enlightening or dramatic or at least just witty.
I'm having trouble coming up with anything.
So here's what I have to say about this skirt: I made this in about 2 hours. Including tracing. Which means a normal person (like you... yes, you!) could make this in about... 25 minutes.
That's pretty awesome.
Here's the school-appropriate version I made first:
It’s khaki twill. And khaki twill. With khaki topstitching. You’re seeing a theme here, right?
Here's the weekend-appropriate version I made next:
It’s green and green-and-floral twill. I forgot to sew ribbon around the bottom of this one (which I had to skip on the first one anyway because I simply couldn't find any that matched... er... in my closet. That was about as much effort as I wanted to put into that.) I'll maybe get some ribbon this weekend and add it around the hemline, it's a nice little detail.
This is what a zombie baby looks like after a night of wild binging on Halloween candy.
I tried to get a picture of the other one, but when I turned the light on she hissed and flung her arms over her arms and ran skulking into the closet to hide. Awesome.
