I bought the fabric last June when I went to the Cotton Patch in Birmingham with Ady - lovely fabric from Sevenberry in a heavy cotton. I've been meaning to make it into a skirt, but somehow never got round to it.
When Cam announced her "Make It in May Sew-Along" I decided this was the push I needed to finally make a skirt, so I signed up and hoped I find some inspiration and time ... I failed on both counts!
Anyway, this weekend I finally made a decision and, before I could change my mind again, ran up the skirt above. It's a modified version of Nikki's A-line skirt pattern ... modified to make it straighter (last weekend as part of my indecisiveness I altered the A-line skirt I made last summer - but never wore - to make it less A-line and this seemed to work better for me!) and I've added a lining so that I can hopefully wear it for more of the year.
I still need to hem it, but thought I'd get in a photo before the light goes completely (it's a very gloomy, wet day here!) and my photographer disappears off on a business trip for the week! I think it looks smart enough for work (maybe after I iron it!!) but could work as a casual skirt too.
