This skirt was probably my most worn garment this summer!And I think it is the most worn garmet I have made until now!It is made of jersey so that makes it so easy to pack when travelling and an excellent piece for both day and night.You can wear it with just a tank top over the day and dress it up some more for the night.These photos were taken while on vacation this summer and i just love the way the wind plays with the skirt!
I made this skirt following Megan Nielsen's tutorial.It was such an easy tutorial and the instructions were so clear!I put it together in less than a half hour and and I loved it so much that I made a black one too.
So this is my mood board for the Banksia top!I'm so overwhelmed by all the ideas in my head and I hope this clears the air a little bit!I did my research mainly through Pinterest(which-by the way-I love) and created this board to help me.My main thoughts include long lace sleeves,sheer fabrics,classic black and white combo,tie front closures,some jersey,shift dresses and sequined collars.I'm going fabric shopping tomorrow so here's hope it will help me decide!
One of the things that made me decide to begin a blog was the opportunity to participate in a sewalong.I was so excited reading all about the Darling Ranges sewalong from Megan Nielsen last spring!I assume you already now Megan Nielsen and if you don't then you really should!She is a talented independent pattern designer and such an inspiration!You can read all about how she started her own business in her ''Becoming a designer'' series.So this time I decided to participate in her second Banksia sewalong!I purchased the pattern last spring together with the Darling Ranges dress(which is high on my to sew list!) and i was pleasantly surprised with how well made the pattern and the instructions were!None of this ugly-made-no-sense-in-the-instruction commercial patterns.The instructions were so easy to follow included in a very useful booklet with very cute illustrations.I already had my first attempt with the pattern and i was so satisfied with the final outcome!You can see photos of my first Banksia top here(sorry for the blurry photos,I was just so excited to share-I will upload better ones as long as I find time).I'm thinking about making a mood board to decide how I'd like my Banksia top this time.Hm...lot's of thinking to do!
So I finally did it!After all this time reading all these amazing sewing and fashion blogs out there I decide to join the club!Stay tuned as I find my way through!Many exciting things to come!
