I recently bought the August – September issue of Vogue Patterns magazine. When sewing blogger Robin Denning announced her new position as Editor of the magazine I immediately renewed my lapsed subscription, however, after catching a glimpse of pages 76 – 83, I wasn’t willing to wait for it to arrive and bought a copy.
This issue provided me with instant inspiration along with a solution to a four-month dilemma!
“Too bold.” I said.
“Too bright……too big……..too much…..”
I l o v e t h i s s k i r t .
It’s summery, cheerful, comfortable and different from my typical clothes.
The stripes even match!
The pattern is McCalls 3830 and the cotton/lycra fabric is from Mood Fabrics. I added a band cut on the cross-grain to the bottom of the skirt as an embellishment to the pattern.
Another day, another skirt? Not for me. It’s more like another day another discovery. I never thought I would be wearing big bold horizontal stripes!
