I made this quite a bit ago, but haven't been able to update it online.




AWKWARD FACE FOR THE WIN!

and just for you folks the very unflattering action shot that you can only see part of the skirt in:





I wanted something classic, cute, sexy and jolly to wear to the little shindig I was hosting and decided to make myself a skirt. Sadly I never finished the suspenders but still love skirt. I used Anna Maria Horner Innocent Crush (Quilt Cotton) Woodcut Passion for the exterior & Anna Maria Horner Innocent Crush (Voile) in a light pink colorway. Both of these I got from http://www.fabricworm.com/

I sewn this baby up in one night. However, the lining isn't the....most beautifully sewn, it does the job well. It's all hold up rather well in the washer, which is a great relief to me. I get tons of compliments on it as well. Cheesy I got the pattern from www.Burdastyle.com . It's a print at home pattern. It's called Jenny Variation C - which is the suspenders I never made...haha. One day.
