During one of the big storms that hit the South this winter I started dreaming of a wool skirt. And then I remembered my plans to make another circle skirt, this time out of a real color.
Grey is a great color, but it’s not someone’s first thought when you say “Pick a color!”
So I went online to the magical land of eBay and got this great emerald wool crepe. This one’s a nice weighty fabric with a loose weave and a lovely texture.
This time I made a 3/4 circle skirt, since the fabric already had enough body, and twirling would be dangerous enough.
I just had acquired a bunch of mystery fabric, and done of it was stiff and canvas like, so I used that as interfacing, since I always forget to obtain heavy interfacing.
And pockets. I put in (drumroll please: tssssssssssss) two pockets! Not one, which is acceptable, but two. Cause I love pockets!
Everything was going perfectly… until the hem. Now, I should have known better than to attempt using my rolled hem foot for such a thick fabric… but I don’t learn. So after an hour of attempting, I gave up.
So I attached this lovely double fold to the bottom and called it a day!
I think I’m in love with this skirt, and I’m proud to wear it for St Patrick’s Day!
Of course, though, it’s now quite warm out. Oh well!
