Shall we dance?


OK, so it took longer than I anticipated, but the skirt is finally finished and my sewing machine and overlocker are weeping with relief. Maybe I'll add a few little ribbons or buttons tonight while we watch some Foyle's War episodes on DVD.

I really love making patchwork skirts. Isn't nature wonderful though? I forget each time just how much effort goes into making one, so I attack it with fresh verve before the memories start seeping into the back of the brain. So I am cured for another six months.



At least I have cleared a tiny corner in my work room and can fill it with new fabric (drool) with a clear conscience. Yummy!

Footnote: I will be putting this skirt up for sale in my Etsy shop, but as it's a size 5, with the new Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) commencing 10 February, I will be selling it from that date as a size 12 for the vertically challenged.

I'm sure one lucky little girl is going to do lots of dancing in that gorgeous skirt. So colourful and fun!

The skirt is so lovely. Please could I be vertically challenged enough to fit into it.

what a gorgeous skirt Robyn, it must have taken ages!!! So lovely, but unfortunately, I don't think I'm 'vertically challenged' enough to wear it! bugger, it would've been so great for dancing!

That is so sweet! I love how bright & colourful it is. So full of life! Perfect for dancing! Looks like good news with regards to the whole CPSIA drama for now. Your listing can safely remain as is long after February 10th. Yay! Oh what am I saying? As if this beauty is still going to be available then! It will no doubt be snapped up pronto :)

This is just so sweet Robyn - I love it. I can see that it would have taken a great deal of work. Thanks for your comments on my new blog - it was very exciting to see that at last, I had been found!

This is just beautiful - if it were just a bit bigger I would try to squeeze into it myself!!
