My Skirt - Work In Progress

Thought I would give the beads a break for a while and do a bit of dressmaking. Well I found a great Simplicity pattern for a skirt but change it slightly.


Using burgundy cotton and a matching flowered polyester together.

The skirt has 8 godgets and 8 separate pieces for the skirt. Instead of using the same fabric all over I am using the polyester flowered material for the godgets. Just had to experiment, if this works out OK then I may try some different colours.

So far so good. If all goes well I should be able to update you all further.
