Blogtoberfest - Day 12 - The Skirtalong!

I managed to sew a skirt as part of One Crafty Mumma's Lazy Days Skirt-along

It is a really simple and easy pattern - so what did I do? I made it complicated by adding on the apron (a thrifted doily) which required I add on a waistband and then because I didn't have any coordinating ribbon for the hem I added on a band at the hem as well - so hopefully the girl who adores yellow will like her new brown corduroy skirt with a beautiful yellow apron with butterflies.

Note to self: follow the instructions, don't add in unnecessary complications and use the fabric that's suggested in the pattern!! Let's see what I come up with tomorrow...

Oh, it's lovely :-) You go right on ignoring instructions if doing so means you produce something so beautiful!

Terrific. I also have a problem following instructions if I bother to read them in the first place.

Oh you complicated it in the best way. I think is adorable

I love the bit you added. Your doily apron is just gorgeous.
