And especially- when the challenge was to be inspired by a fashion icon- my favorite!
So back to Pinterest to find a picture of something I could sew!
I won't make you wait for it. This is the cute skirt I made- inspired by this image of Kate.
I couldn't find the red tartan fabric.
I could find this flannel fabric.
Yes this is a flannel skirt- reminds me of my flannel pajamas growing up! I can see this quickly becoming my favorite skirt.
The reason I labeled my project: Braveheart Inspired on Project Sewn is...
as I was sewing this skirt, my husband walked into the room and asked,
"Are you going to unite the clan?" Braveheart is his favorite movie- all time, so I knew exactly what he was referring to. lol.
After looking at some other people's projects on Project Sewn, especially Kristi (click here), I thought I needed to add lining to this skirt.. lining really makes a sewing project seem more professional and less home-spun. Also, I thought lining will help this skirt hold it's shape better (since it is made out of flannel) and not bunch up when being worn with tights.
I have never, NEVER ever lined anything! Since this skirt is just a tube...I thought I would be able to handle it.
(Spoiler Alert: This is extra fabric from a future Project Sewn assignment. )
Look at the hem! no.. really LOOK AT IT! I did a dang good job!
My son helped me with the pictures, he said "Why are you standing like that?"
I don't know what I am doing?... awkward model syndrome.
Besides the awkward photos- the skirt turned out cute! (and comfy!)
I love /live for comments - they really help me stay positive as I try to learn how to sew.
So thanks for taking the time!
