Sew? I knit!


Sew? I knit!
Originally uploaded by chestofdrawers.

This is it! My skirt for the "Sew? I knit!" challenge. I am very happy with it as it´s the first piece of clothing I have made that I can actually wear and definately not the last! I used a soft, flowing floral fabric that someone gave to me ages ago. I am discovering a new romantic side to me - floral fabrics and soft, feminine clothing have been popping up in my clothing collages a lot more than I had expected. The skirt can be easily sewn in and I will probably wear it with summer t-shirts, a denim jacket and sandals.

It's lovely, it looks so pretty on you and I love the way it falls, such a nice pattern I will have to go in search of it. It is such a great feeling the first time you wear something you have made

You did a great job and the fabric is lovely...falls very nicely.
Nice picture too.
I'm wondering...would you like to be tagged with "The hardest thing to get used to when coming to a new country"? Val (Carlton Rules) thought it up and tagged me. You're the only other blogger I know that has moved internationally. I haven't tagged you on my blog yet. Thought I'd ask you first.
Enjoyed catching up with your posts. You've been a busy girl. Clever stuff!

So cute! Ah, I really want to learn how to sew some day. I love fabric, and I love skirts, and it doesn't even seem within the realm of possibility to me to make the one turn into the other! Have fun making more!
