Who would have thought

I went to an "Amy Butler Trunk Show" the other night at Ballarat Patchwork.
Inspired as always by my friend Jodie, plus the added advantage of 20% off all Amy Butler stuff at Ballarat Patchwork this week, I bought the pattern for this skirt, that actually has 3 variations of skirt included.
Then a SALE hop to the 50% off all fabric at Lincraft, as Jodie insisted I must make a practise one first.
. . . and look what happened.
I still have to hem it, and shame about the legs, but I'm thrilled with my success.

Skirts are all the rage in Ballarat! Everyone's got their legs out. Looks like a nice pattern.

Yay for you! That fabric is PRETTY, so bright and cheerful. And I love that your "practice" skirt looks better than most people's finished product. :)

Lovely, Annie .

But oooh - watch out! Quick little a-line skirt making is a tad addictive. I have more skirts than I can wear since I decided to make ONE over the xmas hols.... and I didn't ever get those linen trousers I wanted made!
