Soooo, one feels that you can't beat a spot of Dee-Lite to sing along to, and my new skirt has inspired that song in my head, even if I only know one line to sing . . . . never mind.
So anyway, this is my new skirt, which I made using some geee-ooorgeous fabric I bought from Helmsley Market on a trip up there a couple of months ago. I wanted to buy enough to make a dress or Holly Jumpsuit, but it was the end of the bolt and there was just over two metres left. I took it anyway, because I knew I would figure out what to do with it eventually.
I went through many many options in my head when last month's Sew Mag came through the door with a new pattern - Simplicity K1418, which is in actually fact a lovely dress which would have looked AWESOME in this fabric, but I didn't have enough *sad face*
BUT I really liked the lines of the skirt, particularly the pleats, so I decided to do a teeeny tiny bit of pattern hacking and just make the skirt, which was oh so easy *happy face*

but not perfect pattern
My pics have been taken on Doris (please excuse her lack of top) as I have barely seen hubby recently to get him to take some photos of me in it - either I've been out or he has been out.

zip insertion (ooo-eer)
In the meantime, I am now on to other sewing projects, and I will no doubt blog about them soon.
