Hiding Out

Some kind of virus/cold has hit our house, and I've been miserable.  Not sick enough to be asleep most of the day, but sick enough to be miserable and kind of grouchy.  I've sequestered myself in my craft room....I think it is safest for everyone at this point.  

Today I worked on a wearable muslin of this skirt pattern.
Looking at it on the hanger, it looks so short to me.
Ironically, it comes to my knees when it is on.

I like the straightforwardness of the pattern.
I like that it has pockets.
This particular fabric was left over from a shirt I made for my daughter.
I wasn't sure I would wear it, but it doesn't look bad with a solid top.

I've made note of what few adjustments I would make and have plans to make another skirt soon.

  1. I love an A line skirt. They are so much more flattering to most women than a pencil skirt is. Love the fabric too.

  4. Your skirt looks great. With a black turtleneck or t-shirt and black tights and flats it would be a classic. Hope you are doing better. Being ill just when the weather gets nice is the worst kind of sick. I'd be grumpy too!
