Skirt

Last weekend and week was very busy, with a lovely Sinterklaas day last Sunday. Kbenco, how nice that you made your children speculaas. We had that too, it really belongs to the tradition (as are chocolate letters and ‘banketstaaf’, a pastry with almond paste in it).
There was not time for sewing till last night and I finished my skirt (except for a button and buttonhole). It really fits well, but I think it’s a tadd too short for me. I’ll try to add pictures on me later and I’ll do a review with a bit more construction details. All in all it’s not a difficult skirt, the hem is gathered and attached to the shorter lining, creating a special hemline with a balloon (?) effect.
   
ETA: picture of me wearing the skirt. It would definitely have been better if it was longer.


I’m taking a break from blogging till the end of the year. It’s a very busy time and I feel that I need to take some rest. If I’m getting to some sewing I’ll show you results later.


I wish you all a very good holiday season!

Thank you for posting so much detail regarding the construction of your garments. I have found your blog an inspiration as well as a wonderful learning forum. Have a great year end and I look forward to learning more from you in the year to come.

Thank you

Lovely skirt. BTW, the skirt isn't too short. You have beautiful legs and you can show them!

Your skirt looks wonderful on you. It is very festive looking.

I wish you and your family a Very Merry Christmas and all the very best in the New Year!

Karin said...

It looks really nice! I don't think the length is bad at all. Have a Happy New Year!

You have good legs so can wear that length, but if you're a tad uncertain opaque tights might be worth a try. Works for me.
Love the skirt!
