I thought the children would love me to wear an alphabet skirt to celebrate making it to Episode 3 of the #GBSB! They are so excited about me being on the television…..there is such a great buzz around school from everyone.
I used Simple Sew Lottie Blouse and skirt.
I love the Lottie Blouse and have made it quite a few times now…
The Paisley Bow Blouse
I knew the skirt pattern would make a great skirt and managed to find this upholstery fabric from a local curtaining store! It was the most school inspired I could find! It was a nice, easy sew with an invisible zip. I decided not to worry too much about the pattern matching on the waistband and then was cross because I could easily have matched it! It was all sewn on before I even noticed…..maybe if I had put my glasses on!!??
I had got a beautiful trim from Fabric Trims and decided to buy myself a black tee shirt style top and embellish it.
I can’t tell you how badly it fits me! All this fitting is obviously paying off! I think it could be the only ready to wear I buy this year!
Of course, you may want to check I am remembering to wear my glasses…
Pattern: Simple Sew Lottie Blouse and Skirt
Fabric: Upholstery Fabric
Notions: 7inch invisible zip, thread and interfacing
Wonky Factor: 7/10 ….the fabric creases easily and the waistband could have been perfect!
