Roll up and see the unsuccessful photos! These are the best of a sorry bunch. You will see Rocket Girl getting in the act too. It has been school holidays for 2 weeks and one day and my attempts at recording my sewing and blogging were highly unsuccessful. My attempts at entertaining three children of widely varying ages were slightly better. I finished my Vogue 1247 skirt at the start of the holidays and have been wearing it a lot since then. I was inspired by Solvi's red version . (Funnily enough Ali just posted about her Solvi jacket inspiration). It feels very novel for me to sew a skirt that is NOT using the skirt block from the Sew U book.
Fabric: A thrifted green fine green cord fabric that cost £2.50. I bought it from the same charity shop as my floral cord and wondered if it had come from the same person's donations. It is a very bright emerald green.
