I finished this skirt on Friday night and I am so so so happy with it! I have already worn it twice out to dinner and to a christening over the weekend.  I used the Beignet skirt pattern from Colette Patterns.  This pattern came together so easily it was a breeze to make. I think it total it took me 5 hours to make and that was while having problems with my machine playing up so it probably could be made even quicker.

This was my first time making button holes and also using silky lining. They were both made super easy because of the great instructions Sarai puts with her patterns. I highly recommend these patterns to anyone who sews.  I am planning on making another one of these in black to wear to work.

Boldly going where others have probably been.

Ha ha! Yeah Colette Patterns first collection was all named after cake type things. There was eclair, macaron, beignet and parfait.  Her new line is all named after tea. The dress I want from her new collection is called Ceylon.
