My love affair with midi/maxi skirts continues

It’s exciting to discover something new for yourself, isn’t it? I used to only wear above the knee skirts and dresses, but making the maxi dress the previous summer introduced me to the beautiful world of midi and maxi skirts.

Subtlety, meet skirt.

I started sewing because I dreamt of pretty 50s-style dresses, already dashing through life armed with giant petticoats and polkadots in my mind.

I’m reaaaally tired after this two-day convention, so today’s Me-Made-May round-up is gonna be short and sweet! 🙂 Day 4 Jumper: Such Flattering Puff Sleeves I love to combine this seater with my red trousers and skirts; it’d feel to boring together with black.

Let’s start sewing again!

Yesterday I looked at this blog and realized I haven’t sewn something since the summer … what happened?! Long story, but it made me want to sit down at my sewing machine and start a project immediately. I pulled out the parts for this Burda wrap skirt pattern (07/2014) I had already cut out last year,…
