I finished it, it's done, ready I say, ready!

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! :)


  1. Wow! That is amazing! So pretty!!!

    I like your new template too :)

  2. It came out great! And I know what you mean about the bulk at the waistband, good choice. Not that I've seen your waist or anything, but after a few kids...and your hobbies are knitting and sewing, not running and biking!!! Same boat is all I'm saying :).

  3. Alexandra - thank you, I'm very happy with how it turned out too. :) Yeah, I thought I'd try out a new template for a change, kinda like this one. :)

    Marybeadz - thanks!

    Amybel - thank you! Oh, btw, I go running three times a week.. ;)

    torirot - thank you!

  4. It's gorgeous! I love the little sparkle on the black.

  5. Dorothy - thank you very much! I really love the little sparkle too. :)

    villapeikko - kiitos, niin munkin mielestä. :)
