Yesterday we spent most of our time next to the radio, traditionally listening to the Hottest 100 during Australia Day. I sewed up this skirt using the "Cute Skirts" pattern by Favorite Things.
The skirt is very quick and easy to make and I lengthened the skirt a bit for my height. I do really like this pattern and next time I make it, I will make the panels at the back the size smaller. The back is elasticated and I prefer the flatter look to the front. I figure if I make the panels just that bit smaller, the skirt will gather less at the back.
Ayden told me that the ducks on the skirt look creepy, so I guess this one will be for home :) For some reason I only saw spots on the fabric when I bought it!
Handy Ayden also told me that I needed to make more of this cushion red, so a quick trip to Ballarat Patchwork to buy the last fat quarter. Trust me to design the stitchery first and the construction second... and Ayden should get back to his Geography homework too.
