Stripey Skirt

I've had a bit of a problem lately that has meant I need to make some new clothes. You see, I've lost 7kg (15lb) over the last 6 months and a lot of my clothes - especially skirts and trousers - are becoming too loose to wear. I know, terrible isn't it?!
Seriously though, I'm loving that I can make clothing that suits my new and improved body shape a little better, so I'm digging out some tutorials that I've been wanting to try out.
I've had some pink and brown striped jersey knit fabric for a little while and decided to make The Hopscotch Skirt using iCandy's tutorial. If you haven't checked out her wonderful tutorials, then definitely take a look. I changed it around slightly as I wasn't a huge fan of the checkerboard look, but otherwise followed the tutorial exactly - and it was so easy.

I love the sash tie on the front, it just adds a bit more cuteness to it.

  1. Great work! And well done on the weight loss! I'll have to check out this tutorial as I'll be needing some skirts for summer, when it finally arrives!
