This skirt has nothing to do with dinner plates, or any crockery whatsoever. The colours just remind me of the Blue Willow china pattern.
Like most people, I'm finding it easy to stick to my new year's resolutions while the year is still less than a week old. I thought this skirt style would look horrible on me, but I quite like it. Don't know if Vogue sizes have changed lately, but the last few new patterns I've bought have required little to no alterations. I cut out size 12, I make it, it fits.
For this skirt, I added a seam allowance to the yoke in case the gathering sat too high, ie right on my stomach. I think it will be fine to make without the extra allowance.
That's right, half my hair is missing.

40 degree heat. Trying to get back to my posing position before the timer goes off. Dodging water bowls for the birds.
Who else is feeling amazingly awesome and smug about keeping resolutions already? Awesommmmmme. Go us.
