It's only mid March, so I guarantee that there will be many more to follow. With this beautiful, warm spring weather we've been having, I can't hep but wear skirts! I'm beginning to think that I need to add a "skirts" category. Here are my latest two, both made from the Cute Skirts pattern, bringing my grand total for 2007 up to 3.
Version #2, made from an Amy Butler print.
Not nearly as stunning as the black & white version. I'm kind of so-so on it. At least it matches perfectly with a top I already own.
Version #3, made from a very boring khaki stretch sateen.
This fabric wasn't at all what I thought it was when I ordered it. For one, the stretch went down the roll, as opposed to across it. This wasn't a problem because I was making a skirt, all I had to to was turn my pattern pieces so that the stretch went across the panels as opposed as the length of it. Also, there's this kind of sheen to it. Not a normal sateen sheen, but more crisp, kind of hard to explain. I did not like it at all, but once the skirt was made up, I don't find it so offensive. In fact, I hardly notice the sheen at all. As boring as it is, I do believe this will be a wardrobe staple this season.
As much as I love the Cute Skirts pattern, I'm starting to get a little bored with it. I think my next versions will be simple A-line skirts. You can't go wrong with that!
