I made this during the By Hand London Charlotte Skirt sewalong and I found it a great way to sew. It was a nice way to try something new - allowing myself the time to do things properly. The pace was nice and easy, just how it should be in January. Have to admit though that I was busting by the end to finish it and wear it. Last night I diligently hand sewed the hem so today it could make its debut.
My skirt is made of linen with a darker yellow lining. As you may remember I bought the fabric with the sole purpose of going with a pair of shoes. I have had the tshirt I'm wearing for a few years but I've never really worn it as it needs to be tucked in... enter the Charlotte Skirt which is in need of something not too thick to be tucked in. I love love love the sailor result. I wore it today to work and my colleagues were extremely kind and generous with their comments. Next time, I'll make it with something thicker like brocade.
