Right now I am happily riding the wave of my sewing mojo. My Cambie is finished (a reveal will follow after the wedding I’ve made it to wear at next weekend), and I celebrated by starting something new, straight away.
Maybe this puts me in the realms of weird fan girl, but when I saw the Marielle Skirt on Tilly’s blog I knew I needed this skirt in my wardrobe.
The directions (even in a magazine which I guess might have been edited) were perfectly clear and lovely. Somehow though my skirt ended up with the opening on the opposite side. I don’t think I made any whoopsies and my fabric was the correct way up, but clearly something happened, not that it matters.
(There is a strange chicken v dog territory war going on behind me in these photos. Penny tries to look for squirrels in the tress. The chickens are unimpressed and charge her, trying to peck her tail as she runs away. Chickens look triumphant.)
The fabric is some navy cord, and I lined it with a little cotton print I picked up somewhere. Buttons are from my rescued/frogged Levenwick.
I love how this skirt is going to go with so many things in my wardrobe. Penny likes it too.
