I am enjoying this spring weather and the extra energy I have this week.
Day 20, was a spring clean day and I went for a go to outfit, a skirt and a tank. I was so involved in my spring cleaning that I neglected to take a photo of it on my body, but I got a shot of the fabulous 80's fabric that I made my skirt from. I love these colours. I wish I made a more swishy skirt instead of a straight, oh well.
Day 21. I made this skirt just the night before, from a 20 cent curtain. I really wanted a swishy skirt. It took me an hour in total. It is made from a 70's pattern cut on the bias. I love it, the colours are very springy. Go to tank top here. I did a spot of fabric shopping with a couple of lady friends who I will make some garments for. A bit exciting. I was a little naughty, I couldn't resist this bold apple fabric that I will make up into a skirt (today I think).
Day 22. I decided to take the kids to Bribie Island for a frolic on the beach and went for a nautical skirt that I whipped up. I had been wanting to make a border skirt on a diagonal, but I didn't have enough fabric left over from Alby's bedroom curtains. Made from a simple 60's skirt pattern. I'm hoping the fabric softens up a bit. It stands up by itself. I look knackered, because I am. Kids, driving, beach, ice creams, op shops; phew!
We made a mermaid using a stack of shells. What fun.
