A Skirt has been brought into the world.

I am so happy. I’ve just finished constructing my first garment! It’s official- I’m quitting my job and going full time as a fashion designer! Okay, maybe not. This is a lot of work, and I had to take apart and redo portions of this thing repeatedly. Nevertheless, I am pleased by the final product, if I do say so myself. I was going for kind of a shabby chic look, and had initially planned to put a jellybean-shaped pocket on the front using the striped fabric that I used on the belt loops, but it was too much with the maroon sash/belt thing so I dropped the idea at the end of the project. I am so in love with the fabric- isn’t it adorable?
