Viewfinder Skirt

OK, it's been over six months since my last post. It's not like I haven't been a bit crafty, it's just that I was blessed with the Amazing Non-Sleeping Child. Recently said child has begun to sleep long periods at night, and even decent stretches of an hour+ at naptime. I can create again!

I have come to show you my newest creation, a skirt for me.

Ever since I saw this fabric from the Ruby Star Rising line by Melody Miller, I knew it would grace a skirt for me.

The pattern is a Vogue Elements jeans skirt from Way Back When - I bought it at least seven years ago. I'm awfully pleased with my fussy cutting on the hem.

I love the enormous pockets - great for holding a phone and tissues to wipe the ever runny toddler nose.

The inside hem is finished with this great hem facing tutorial I found over at Oliver + S. (The facing fabric happens to be an Oliver + S print too!)

I'm pretty chuffed with it.

I love it! The viewfinder fabric is extremely jolly, and I like how you have used it just in places, rather than making a whole skirt from it. The hem looks very pleasing and neat, and I am a massive advocate of ENORMOUS POCKETS.

So lovely to see you back in the blogosphere and I hope Bea continues to have loooooooong naps so that you can unleash more genius like this! x
