Beware! This woman is an enabler. I was forced, against my will to break my New Year’s resolution after a mere 30 days. Actually that’s pretty good going for me. And if I paid by credit card then I’m not actually ‘buying’ anything as such until I pay the card off, am I.
Anyway, it’s Jungle January (Yeay!) and there was no way I was going to miss out because of one silly little New Year’s resolution. I love animal print. In my youth my flatmate and I decorated our whole flat in the stuff. Admittedly I did um and ah for quite a while before ordering fabric – a cotton twill with a bit of stretch from ebay. It arrived yesterday, so I washed it then had to wait for it to dry. Tonight I rushed home from work, fed my children beans on toast for dinner (all the food groups represented, what’s the problem?) then packed them off for an early night so I could knock this beauty together.
I used Gertie’s pencil skirt pattern from her book and cut a size 8. Because of the stretch I think I could do with taking the side seams in a bit more. Because of this I haven’t hemmed it yet. So I’m afraid it isn’t actually finished, but I ran out of time to take photos.
