If theres anything you wanted that you really couldn't find I'd be happy to have a look and see if I could find it to post down to you- same goes for anyone else who doesn't live near a hobbycraft!  Grin

wow! thanks for the nice words everyone!

I found the cat fabric at the John Lewis in Welwyn Garden City if anyone's interested... But it's really annoying that not all JL's have a haberdashery  Sad and it is a little expensive sometimes. I really love the market in St. Alban's though... they have really useful, sometimes pretty fabrics and the prices are nices  Wink

But yes, I love cats. I wear this with a t-shirt with painted paw prints on. And cat earrings. And when I grow up I want to be a cat.  Tongue

I've put up a tutorial for the skirt now... if you've any comments (i.e. improvements) please do  Smiley or if anyone ever uses it I'd reeally love to see the pictures Cheesy

love you!

Now, you realise you've gone and done it now.... I wanted a skirt pattern from JL, but now I'll have to go and check out the fabrics too!!!  Roll Eyes

Lovely material, nice skirt!!  Cheesy

That fabric is amazing! I'm going to use this tutorial to make one out of some postman pat fabric I've had laying around!

I really like this skirt so I thought I'd have a go but I can't seem to get past the first step!
The tutorial says that for the front piece you need half your waist measurement plus 80cm plus 3cm for seam allowance but my waist measurement is 68cm (which isn't huge, I've got to say) and the standard width metre of fabric I've got is about 5cm too narrow for those measurements to work out.
I'm pretty new to sewing and haven't ever sewn a garment before - am I making some sort of mistake reading the tute or is dusk just rather tiny? My mum reckons I should just fudge around a bit with the width of the pleats or something, does anybody else have any suggestions?
