It's thoroughly embarrassing how long it took me to sew this skirt, but now it's finished! Whee! And I love it, I've actually worn it today, and that's saying a lot, I'm not really a skirt type person. But hey, it's summer, you're supposed to wear skirts, right? I'm already planning my next one.. And a dress, I have the pattern drawn up for the dress, just have to wait to get the fabric. Aaanyway, here's the finished skirt (please pretend that you can't see the drainpipe-thingy behind me, ok?)
Did I mention yet that I love this skirt? How fun to have a twirly, swirly skirt, I feel so girly in it. :) The only thing I regret is that I made the back piece plain black, it looks kinda boring.. Oh well, I love it anyway. I omitted the waist-flap-thingy that the original skirt had (that you can see over here), because nobody would ever have seen it, I never ever wear my shirts tucked into my skirts or pants. It would just have added extra bulk under my shirts. I decided on a plain, thin waistband instead, and I'm glad I did. And I'm totally in love with that sequinned fabric too, it's so pretty! Here's a close-up. Oh, all the sequins are black, eventho some of them look lighter.
I'm so happy! :)
