Getting skirty!

I decided it was time to ditch the jeans and t-shirts that I had been practically living in since my second son was born and start wearing more skirts and what easier way to do it than making them yourself!

I have only used fabrics I already owned as I am determined to reduce my stash by actually using it! I used the Amy Butler Barcelona skirt pattern for the first two, it is such a lovely pattern to use, very easy to follow!

I also made a demin skirt from a pair of jeans. This has been on my to-do list for a very long time! I left the hem unfinished as I like it this way.

I am enjoying wearing these new skirts and I am already planning on making more!

Lovely colours in the first 2 skirts. I should get back in the habit of wearing them too - I find them more comfy than jeans. I think my problem is not knowing what to wear on the top half. Anything goes with jeans!

Teresa - I have just been wearing these skirts with t-shirts and jumpers, same as I would wear with my jeans.

Thanks Jeanette, I fancied a change!
