I got this book from the library not too long ago and it is the most fun! Chock full of skirts, it walks you through drafting patterns and sewing up your own lovely creations!
Now, I have to note, I'm not a skirt girl. If I were to label myself anything it would be a jean girl, but most days you'll find me lounging around the house in yoga pants.
But as Spring approaches, it turns my thoughts to colorful, feminine, twirly skirts. It reminds me of when I was a little girl and every Easter I got a beautiful new Easter dress. And if memory serves me well, I remember being so proud of those dresses/skirts, twirling and courtesying here, there and everywhere. Like a little princess.
All of the ideas in this book were cute, though there were a couple that we too short for my liking. But one in particular really caught my eye. It was beautiful and I just might try whipping up my own.
Oh, can't you just see yourself leaping through a meadow in this skirt? Barefoot, with the wind in your hair?
I can just invision!
Or gently lifting it off the ground to gracefully climb into your suiter's carriage?
