Er, so two weeks ago I started making 4 pencil skirts at once, thinking I had the makings of an excellent human production line and would finish the stupid things all in one day.
Here is what I learned.
Making multiple versions of an item is very boring. Especially when they're lined. It's like making eight items but only ending up with four (yes, I actually lined something. On purpose).
So here are 3 of the 4 skirts, the 4th one not having made it past the cutting-out stage.
These are all made from leftovers of other dresses and skirts I've made over the years. This purple skirt is made from the remains of this dress.
I don't know what I originally bought this for, but I think it was another skirt. Since I don't own anything in this fabric I'm assuming the first skirt was a failure.
The 3rd skirt was to be red tartan.
Moving right along to the 4th skirt, this fabric is... 70's? 60's? Who can tell me? It's printed, and soft like brushed flannel.
I couldn't decide if the purple shoes or blue boots suited it better.
I can't get enough of glittery nails lately. It's like having 10 little drag queens dancing on my fingers.
Details: Purple shoes - Modcloth
Blue boots - Naturalizer clearance sale
Rings - cheap retail
Necklace - Christmas gift
By the way, I don't like the colour purple or anything.
