Fabric purchased at Roxy Super Cheap fabrics last week - I ducked in to the shopping centre at lunchtime in search of a sausage roll. Then I walked past Super Cheap, so I thought " ok, one quick lap around the shop" I grabbed a couple of bolts of fabric on my " quick lap" - and then found out that everything in the store was $3 a metre!. So I bought a couple of bits of fabric ( and then bought my lunch!).
I had a sewing day yesterday and made a couple of tops- the Sew Different 2 hour top free pattern, not quite finished, not sure if I want bias binding or facing on the neck and hemline.
Then I played around with an idea for a skirt. I remembered the hidden front pockets on Vogue 1247, seen over on Thornberry a while ago. I folded the front piece to make a couple of pockets, then carefully sewed in white on the white part of the fabric in between the print. The fabric has enough stretch and didn' t need a separate " yoga" waistband- in fact I had to add an extra dart in the back.
I wore it to work today and had sooo many compliments! (I work with the best people!) and it was sooo super comfy. After a rather crazy stressful day - password on computer playing up, arguing on the phone over equipment orders, visits starting late & running over time, lunch at 3pm, leaving later than planned ( where did that last hour go?!) I could have been getting grumpy, but everytime I looked down at my funky new skirt I couldn't help but smile! I think it might be my new favourite skirt!!!
