That Print Skirt

A friend took a few pictures of me wearing my new print skirt. If you're interested, you could compare the skirt on me to the skirt on a hanger. Because the fabric is so drapey, it doesn't look full at the hem (on me) like it does on the hanger. But it feels comfortable when I sit down, unlike a pencil skirt would (pencil skirt = leg hugger). Please let me know what you think about the length. The next skirt will be for fall.

Oh and I made the green shirt, from a Louise Cutting pattern (Perfect Blouse maybe?). I took it along for the weekend, even though it needed a good steaming or pressing, not having worn it in a couple of years. So it hangs kind of funny. I have my Laura Star (steam press) heating up right now.

Blessings and peace...

  1. I think the skirt looks perfect! As for the length, I like my skirts at that same length, just under the kneecap. The green blouse/jacket is the perfect color for it too. Time to sew another??

    1. Hi Linda, Thanks for your perspective about the skirt length. Most of the others are a couple of inches longer, and they were feeling dowdy. Yes, it's time to sew another! But first, I'm going to (try to) make a t-shirt dress for a 2-year-old girl whose birthday is coming up. Of course I have no suitable fabric LOL.

    1. Thanks, Lynda, for your complement. I try to learn about and apply information about proportion, but I have no confidence about it. I have the same issue with colors SIGH.
