I was looking at some simple a-line skirts over the weekend, and thinking “God that looks easy. I bet even I
could make that skirt with my rudimentary seam-sewing skills.”
So today, I took myself up on the challenge, and bought some fabulous retro-print material from Ikea (it’s called “Fialena“, which I think sounds like a supporting role in a Rossini opera). It was only $12.95, so if it’s a disaster it’s not the end of the world.
But I just got it home, and I already have my first speed bump.
Which way to make the skirt?
So I’m hoping that you, my beautiful little fashionistas, will offer your own suggestions on the following:
A) BIG CIRCLES DOWN, RED:
B) BIG CIRCLES DOWN, BLUE:
C) BIG CIRCLES UP, RED
D) BIG CIRCLES UP, BLUE
The last option is borrowed from the fantastic Ninaribena of www.ninaribenamakes.blogspot.com
– for a proper idea of what it’ll look like – rather than a tucked-into-waistband-of-knickers idea check out Nina’s post:
I’m going to buy a pattern after all instead of just winging it, so you have until Sunday to get your votes in (Just comment a, b, c, d or e in the comments section). Then – unless it looks like a complete dog’s breakfast – I’ll post the finished result some time next week. Prolly.
Wish me luck!!
