Hello! Happy Monday and I hope you all had a lovely weekend! I finally finished (okay, I haven't done the pockets yet) my skirt and I was so eager to wear it that I went 'as is'. I'm pretty proud of finally getting comfortable with my sewing machine and making something I actually like. Plus it feels pretty rewarding to put something on and know that you made it yourself...know what I mean? It's a very simple silhouette, a gathered waist with a flat band but it features an invisible side zipper - woo hee!! Thanks to my awesome sister for coming over on the weekend to give me a zipper tutorial. You're the best!
I was inspired by this gorgeous marigold heritage cotton fabric, I knew instantly it would be a perfect fall skirt. Then I layered the vivid colour with more neutral pieces, except for the aqua necklace - I couldn't resist a pop of contrast. Plus we're having a balmy fall so I got away with bare legs - yay!

Do you sew at all friends? Did you learn as a kid or take it up later in life?
Have an amazing day!
