O Pinterest why do you put ideas in my head? I was supposed to be falling asleep but instead I was browsing Pinterest and found a pin on "DIY Maxi Skirts" (here is the blog the pin went to: http://individualrivalry.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/its-here-diy-maxi-skirt-tutorial.html)…Its like a short person's dream to have a full length skirt that actually fits!!! I didn't really have any plans for my Sunday - so dress making it was!
Am I a great sewer? Nope. Am I an average sewer? Not really…that would be pushing it. Am I a beginner sewer with a sewing machine? Bingo! Actually the dresses where not that hard to construct (w/ a lil phone help from my mom who does sew), but making them fit just right seemed to be my problem. I made one skirt a bit small and the other one a bit big. Here they are:
The one that was a lil big, I took in a little bit (the top picture) so it is now wearable. I am excited to wear it tomorrow to work!
