Today, I will tell you about a project that has been in the making for weeks now. And, it's still not finished! Not even close.
I wanted to make a skirt that looks just like this one. Well, only with different lace and maybe in a different color. Isn't it beautiful and unique, though?!
I also wanted to make the pattern myself.
So, first I searched all kind of blogs for pencil skirt tutorials, and found this one over at House of Marmelade, which is very detailed. I started measuring, did some more measuring, drafted a pattern and cut it out.
At this point I was not convinced that I did everything right and decided to test it on some scrap fabric. Only problem was, I do not own scrap fabric. Luckily, my husband just added some of his old dress shirts to the throw away pile. Perfect! I just centered my pattern over the shirt and cut it out.
Hoping to show it off soon.
