I was running some errands last week, Useful errands, not shopping for the pure pleasure of shopping. Suddenly, I spotted those red boots in a shop window.
(I kept the cat and the birds on the picture, to prove you that the witch of the previous post is really me)
I kept saying to myself that they were too fancy, perfect for my daughters but not for a 50something lady (or witch), that I had nothing to wear with them, etc... But if you have read tales, you know you can't resist red shoes. So I went back to the shop the day after, and tried them. At least, the story would be over since I can't find a pair of boots that fits me. I can't imagine those would fit. Well, you know how red shoes behave. They did fit. So, what was I to do?????
Buy them, and stop by the fabrics shop on my way home to find some "sober" fabrics to go with those fancy boots :-)
At work or at home, this bright yellow basic will chase away those storm clouds! The A-line shape, small patch pockets on the front, a front hip yoke and faced waist lend this skirt Sixties appeal.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
In fact, I did not follow the instructions from the magazine but from Deb Thompson who provided an illustrated step by step
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the A shape
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I cut the back middle in two in order to sew the zipper there.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I think I would use it again
I needed a skirt in a hurry, and I made this one in one (big) afternoon. So it was perfect.
