Ahoy there! I have been away this week but I am back and have lots to blog about! First is my new make, my Anchors Away Circle Skirt!This skirt was inspired by the little anchor patch which I got a while ago along with a whole loads of others that I haven't used yet and I thought it was about time.
|Iron-on from Patsy May|
I drafted the circle skirt pattern myself using Casey's sewalong on Elegant Musings which was fab as I am not so good on the mathematics side of things. (I made one before from jersey but we won't go there) I added the white braid and iron on and a small gold button with a bent shank with another cute anchor on it.
It fits me perfectly though next time I will make the waistband a little longer so that it overlaps a bit more for the button and buttonhole. I had great fun wearing it out for cocktails and then again while shopping in London. Get ready for picture overload!
