I made a skirt today!
This is the Flirting the Issue skirt by Anna Maria Horner. You can find the free pattern here!
It isn’t the most flattering on me, having the gathered elastic waist band and all. And it certainly doesn’t hide the 20 pounds I’ve gained (arrgh!) But it doesn’t look that bad, either. All in all it’s acceptable and I could be seen in public wearing it.
The skirt is cotton voile. I didn’t even know what voile was before I went into the fabric store. Let me tell you, cotton voile is the most wonderful light and buttery-soft fabric you could ever ask for. Perfect for a hot summer day!
