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.
