Urm, well, not really, we've had snow pretty much all weekend. Annoyingly, as it's stopped us from travailing to see a friend.
But I used my time to work on projects instead- One of which is the Picnic Blanket skirt from Tilly and the Buttons.
I love this skirt! It was pretty easy to put together, and it's right up my street. shape wise.
I had to alter the patter ever so slightly, so that I could squeeze it out of the fabric I bought ages ago for a different project that never was. But it made little difference as far as I can see, there is still plenty of fullness to the skirt and it's a lovely length!
I'm going to have to put it away now until summer, as it is really light weight and will not do in this cold.
Fabric: Light weight gingham poly-cotton, aprox 1.5m
Challenges: One thing I'm not great at is getting that mine of stitching straight when your sewing the back of the waistband- I don't know what it's called. This bit always ends up wonky, so need to practice!
Hours: Cut it out during the first half of Hairspray, sewed it together during The Dark Knight and finished the buttons during Serenity, so, four hours total?
Cost: £4 for the fabric about two years ago, and £2.80 for the buttons
Do it again?: I have plans to make it again as my Easter Skirt in the yellow curtain fabric I picked up thrifting the other day.
