Christmas is almost upon us and it’s the season of parties: This year I have surprised myself by making two skirts for Christmas! Next year I hope to make a dress… but anyway!
Yay! I’m sure there are some other crafty department store shoppers out there who are currently thinking “Hey, I’m using that as our Christmas tablecloth this year…” Well now you can eat from your happy Christmas table knowing that someone was wearing a rather uncomfortable skirt made from your tablecloth fabric.
I made this as a wearable muslin for another skirt – so glad I did! The pattern is Kwik Sew 3852 which I bought a few weeks ago. I’m pretty happy with how this turned out, two things to note though: This fabric is waaay to scratchy to wear comfortably in Australian summer, and I really should finish all the waist fastenings before running around in it for a day. Several times I had to stop it falling down after getting out of a chair because the hook and eyes had come undone… so the slip I decided to wear underneath helped with my two problems… Will I wear it again? Isn’t it fun learning how to sew!
Now here’s a rather abstract Christmas Horror pic as proof I wore the skirt:
It’s like I’m the Christmas Swamp Fairy… or something…
