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.
