any-ways enough of me blabbering on about other things and on to the sewing I hear you shout!!
Back in febuary I made a maxi skirt. The material has been in my stash for a while. It's a lovely soft feeling material, with a ditzy floral print, contain pinks, greens, blues and white on a black background, I think you can still buy the material here.
I wanted this maxi to be a little bit different to the norm, so I made it a wrap around version.
..........well except that I forgot to factor in my hip measurements, which is a good 9-10inches bigger than my waist, which meant my lady bits were near enough on show again! I seem to be making a habit of this (closet exhibitionist anyone haha!).
Luckily when I cut out the measurement on the fabric there was two 6cm strips left, so after un-stitching the skirt I attached the fabric strips one either side using a narrow seam and then gather the skirt to fit the waist and wha d'ya know it fits fine, no lady bits nearly showing and the wrap round gives a good amount of coverage.
The waist band fastens with two buttons on the inside to give a neat finish. The skirt is perhaps a touch long worn with sandals, but I'm undecided weather to shorten the length as it fits perfect worn with wedges.
In homage to Angelina Joile I decided to flash the leg!!!
With out trying to sound too vulgar I realised after-uploading these pictures that the bra I'm wearing does absolutely nothing for my boobs!!! In the bin it will be going- well I have had it a while!!
bin* by which I mean out for re-cycling.
