i know, i know, i've needed to update, but i've been busy making things!
so, i am completely in love with the styles of the 50s and 60s and have become inspired by them. lately my new thing has been making circle skirts ofr myself. they are sooo easy to make and are classically cute. here,http://ficklesense.blogspot.com/2011/09/how-to-make-circle-skirt-full-34-12-14.html, is the website where i go to get the equations to figure out the measurements for my skirts...and what's even better, is that they have four different skirt variations. full circle skirt, 3/4 circle skirt, 1/2 circle skirt, and 1/4 circle skirt. the only one i haven't made is the 3/4 circle skirt. so far, all the circle skirts i've made have been out of printed cottons i've gotten from Hobby Lobby. i use 2" elastic for the waistband.
so, as you can see, i have been busy over the last few days adding new clothing to my wardrobe. for the cherry skirt and the green dot skirt i added tutorials on my site here, http://www.burdastyle.com/profiles/betterhandmade/my_studio. i am also keepin with my new tradition of making christmas presents for family and friends, and seeing as christmas is in 10 days, i guess i should get to workin on the fleece infinity scarves i am going to make for them. of course i will post pictures of the finished products. so, until next time, happy sewing!..and a little inspiration from a fabulous pin i found on Pinterest
