OOoohhh... beginner sewers - thats me in a nutshell!! I'm always looking at gorgeous fabrics, but everything is usually too hard to make - so I don't try... Maybe I 'could' do this :)

JJ said...

You can't beat a patterened skirt and that looks like a style that will fit all shapes. Its Autumn here in Victoria Australia, I would make one in black and white to start with and team it with a black long-sleeved tee, my lush new red velvet jacket and biker boots, finished off with a funky cap and one of my homemade felt corsages. Happy days.
