As a co-worker pointed out, today was the second time I have worn a skirt to work in about 5 years.
But what a skirt it was ! On Saturday Annie and I went to Daylesford to visit The Makers Market. Of course we popped in and visited Lark and I also popped into ThreadNeedle craft and Purls Palace to show off my first completed project for the retreat.
At Purls Palace I was looking at this fabric when Annie suggested it would be a good school skirt. I agreed and then she kind of dared me to not only make a skirt by Monday but to actually wear it !
Hows that !
So off I trotted this morning, in my skirt - it cause a small ruckus in the staffroom I have to say..and even though I felt a bit nekid and breezy I have decided that I can do skirts, and quite obviously I can make them ...(No-one pointed and giggled and said how home made it looked)
So now maybe I am a wearer of skirts.
The skirt is an adaptation of Amy Butler's A line skirt from the Barcelona skirts pattern.
(and because I believe in truth in blogging- you have to know there's a good six or eight inches of fatty boombalatta coverage pinned in the back to hold the skirt on the mannequin)
