Bespoke Skirt

I don't know about you but over the years I have found it very frustrating when shopping for skirts.
a) I  can never find the style I like  and b) when I do, the waistband is always too big.
I have sewn quite a bit over the years and especially when the girls were small. However, I didn't know how to make up my own pattern.

So you can imagine my delight when Judith put on a Saturday skirt workshop.

I had some petrol blue needlecord that I had bought in Holland many years ago and knew it would make a lovely A -line skirt.
Hard at work.

Our teachers" hard at work."

Pattern piece all cut out and ready to place on fabric.

Finished A-line skirt.
The whole day was  lovely and relaxed with lots of laughter, fun and cake.
I think you will agree  the skirt looks great.
I can't wait to go out shopping and look for some more fabric . My next one will be brown to go with my brown boots.
Thanks so much to Judith and Heather  for a great workshop.
You can check out a few more of the skirts here.
It's back to porridge tomorrow, so hope you have a great week.
