40 minute skirt!

Here is my 40 minute skirt. Yes, 40 minutes from the first cut to the finishing the hem. I just used another skirt as a pattern, and wished for the best. I actually made 2 skirts. You can see the first blue one peeking out on the side. After that one worked out I was brave enough to cut into this beautiful fabric (Kaffe Fasset, Verbena Trees). Oh, If I were to design a fabric it would look just like this one. I can't wait to wear my skirt with brown tights and a cardigan. Since it has been near 100 degrees the last few days I think I will have to wait a little longer. The funny thing is that I made these two skirts on Monday, but I just have been so busy I didn't have time to photograph them.

I agree - that is the perfect fabric, and I LOVE the look of this skirt. That it was created in 40 minutes makes me love it all the more!

I was at the fabric store to buy some fabric for a non-sewing project and saw so many pretties that reminded me I MUST get my sewing machine fixed and teach myself some new skills!

40 minutes - wow. Fabric really is very pretty. We are having really odd weather at the mo -- the rain is throwing itself down but it is so humid I am just sweating buckets - it's really not nice.
