Woah, same skirt as yesterday; snap! Though this version is view C and is made out of a bright cheery, bohemian, gypsy-ish print. This is another skirt pattern I've used a lot, although not as much as my old standby Vogue 7303. Come to think of it, if I'd kept all the skirts I've ever made using these two patterns, I could go a whole month of Self-Stitched September with no double-ups, no worries. I've used them both heaps of times. (I know, boring) Don't worry, I've been branching out lately and have a few new exciting summery items and patterns to post here once this month of self-stitching documentation is over... one photo a day is enough imo.
The top is my own design, made from an old pair of three quarter pants; for the original story and a short tutorial on how to do this see here. Although the pants in their original form were dag-city, the fabric was in very good condition and I loved the soft yet still sharp citrusy colour of the linen. So I saw potential. Took the scissors to them and never regretted it.
We've got a nice afternoon planned seeing our friends; it is my friend E's birthday too, and we are looking forward to having a drink (or two) and viewing their latest holiday snaps.
