FO: Skirt!

My first sewn project in... 15 years?



I've completed the pencil skirt, and let me tell you, the green and purple striped pattern will match my Forecast perfectly!

I love the high waist. I know that a lot of people think they look more fat in it. I prefer to show that I have a little belly over having the skirt/pant waist just over the hip - the place where I have my little "extra" and get a bulk. I'm starting to sound like Eunny now. This is not a fashion blog. Though when we're at it, have you noticed that the two largest groups of female bloggers are knitting/crafting blogs, and fashion blogs. Generally, I don't like fashion blogs, because I think they only talk about expensive designerbags and only try to follow the fashion that's out in the stores. But I've found a girl who really explores the world of fashion. She also happens to like high waists! Check out the pictures on her blog, even if you don't know Swedish!

And a last picture of my skirt. Did you know that I only payed about 250 SEK ($ 30) for the fabric and everything? And I started to sew it yesterday evening, so this sewing thing is really fast! And you also can save money on sewing your own clothes!
