A little while ago I set myself a new challenge to dust off my old sewing machine and to get using it! The only way to get better at something is with practice, not thinking if only I was better...
After I received the travelling Stash Box I realised my opportunity had come, there was some devine thick fabric in there that was the perfect amount for a super simple skirt!
One day I would love to put a little applique pocket on the front, but lets face it, I'm not much of a perfectionist and now that I have 'finished' this I probably wont be altering it. Dreams, huh?
Anyway, I quickly had to sew this then and there (10pm at night) and debuted it at Church the next morning. Hubby loved seeing my legs after a long winter! ;)
It feels SO GOOD to have made something that I can wear myself!
My summer sewing challenge I have set for myself:
The print on the fabric is navy and white. I teemed it with a colbolt blue cardi, and a peachy pink scarf and matching shoes. Just between us I love wearing scarves. For someone who has a limited wardrobe they are the perfect accessory to change any outfit!
