cutting into the stash…

I’ve been hoarding that baby corduroy  fabric for about 4 years (maybe 5…) and just forgot about it. It was supposed to become a maxi skirt so I’ve bought 3.2 meters of it… but I found out meanwhile, that maxi skirts aren’t nice looking on that wide hips woman.

Took my now go to pattern from the sew serendipity book and had a go at it! (you can find my first skirt from that pattern here).

I wanted something that was screaming  saying handmade… as I told my hubby, if I wanted something that looked store bought I would not go into that much trouble and go buy one at the store 🙂

Hence the birdie 🙂 and I love piping, so piping it got.

I made the same size as the last one, and this one came out perfect! i think the first one was a bit large because the denim was stretchy.

My second invisible zipper, and it’s perfect!

And you are in luck today as I’m posting a picture of myself lol! (I’m sure I’m not the only one that hate seeing herself in pictures…) And just resisted the urge of cutting my face off… just don’t pay attention to it lol!

    (Think you’re right about the first skirt — the stretchy fabric increased the size.)
