My titles are so imaginative don't you think? Anyway, in my rush to show this skirt I couldn't wait for a good light or my husband to take the photos so you will have to apply some imagination. This is a simple A-line skirt (so therefore not nearly so unflattering as it appears on the ill-fitting hangar). I used a Betsy Ross pattern, which was so lovely to use.
No rustling of tissue paper, the patterns are printed on proper paper and comes with a helpful step by step instruction booklet.
I found the Harris Tweed on-line here. The colours are gorgeous and the fabric is beautifully soft. I may have to treat myself to some more while their special offer continues. The pale fabric was perfect for embellishing and although I did orginally plan some more graphic embroidery I lost my nerve and decided to keep it simple with some circles and buttons.
