"Two Hours" Skirt...


   It was time to give another push to the challenge raised by our lovely Gina, it´s to get a   "partner" for all those clothes hanging in our closet that we do not use because they don´t go well with everything else....

   So I had this beautiful top spot in my closet for a while and I decided to close that gap.

   For starters, I found this little piece of plaids fabric in my stash, it was a very small piece left over from some previous project, so I had to find a way to get something with this....

   This was really easy and fast, only took me two hours to cut and sew it. The base was cut off the top of a pencil skirt pattern, like a peplum... and add the rest of the fabric by making small folds, so fast...

 And the next day morning I was already using it, another suit in my wardrobe , Yeah!!!

    Now a little secret... I get up at half past six in the morning, I found this great picture from my balcony when I got a few days ago.... I promise yu that this photo is not retouched, it´s as it´s picked up the camera and ... I knew that I had found the perfect inspiration for my next project...


      So.... Happy Sewing, Ladies...

  1. Rosy, what a great skirt! I like that the top is flat, which makes a top worn outside look so much neater. Amazing color match with the top.

  4. Me encanta el color y la falda muy bonita, se te ve genial. Pregunta de aprendiz: ¿Utilizas algún sistema para hacer patrones o los sacas todos de revistas? Porque a mi las transformaciones me traen de cabeza.
    Petonets desde BCN.

  5. What a really beautiful skirt - a very good use of two hours and a scrap of fabric. I love the plaid - it looks very cute, especially made up in this fun looking skirt style. I love your beautiful photo of the view from your balcony.

  6. What a smart skirt. I how fitted it is on top, and then becomes a very full skirt at the bottom. The best of both worlds.
