I have already worn my skirt three times. Yes in two weeks. Remember, Holly and I had made Simplicity 2258 the weekend before last? Well, I made it again (and again).
I made one for my bestie Jen for her birthday. That was my first time making a garment/gift, so I wanted it to be really special. She is a bit more modest than I am, so I made her the longer version but kept the ties. She also loves Hawaiian things - like her husband! So I paid tribute to Hawaii with the material which is a shirting I found at Joann's.
This is the outside front of the skirt. I love how saturated the colors are. I think it would be great for a luau!
But wait! There is more!
I just got busy this morning making yet another one. I know, the next project I have to show you is different I promise.
When completes this is now my finished skirt looked inside. I made the lining shorter on purpose because it is too hot to wear extra layers here in Houston. I just didn't want anyone checking out my knickers. There are no raw edges because I put it together so the raw edges face each other.
And again, the outside. You can't even tell there is an extra layer there. Maybe when Mr. Thinks He Can gets home I will add an action shot in the skirt.
