Just a couple more skirts...


I can't help it...these wrap skirts are just so quick and easy to make, and who can resist a comfie skirt??








I purchased this fabric some time back from Spotlight.


The mannequin is just slightly smaller than me...ok ALOT smaller than me... lol so I had to sit it down from the waist quite a bit more than I actually wear it. But I do love this fabric, and it's fabric that a patchwork quilter would love more...


Written all over the skirt is 'I love fabric design, buttonhole prints bold colours' etc.


We have also started stage 2 of our renovations, which has had me busy helping hubby. I don't mind filling up the trailer with all the unwanted old building materials or demolishing the walls with the block buster, but I dislike hanging and carrying plaster sheets!!! lol!

The folder with the Anni Downs house stitchery on front, is where I keep all my info for the reno...paint colours, plans etc. I have been looking at carpet colours for our bedroom and WIR. Only recarpetting our bedroom but the WIR has been built on. I will share some pics when it's all finished.

I hope you all have a great week

The shirts are gorgeous. We are also renovating and I have decided that we aren't plasterers and we will be getting in professionals for the next part. It is amazing how the plasterboard snaps quickly and I used words I don't normally use when we did the cornice in the one and only room we did plaster ourselves. Louise

Lovely skirts, you will be ready for the new season.
Have fun with the renovations. Don't forget, keep the end result in mind!

What the best dressed bloggers should be wearing. Fab skirts Lisa. I am sure that you will do a great job on the renovations if the results of your lovely sewing room are anything to go by. Crack that whip.

I love your skirts.... I remember my mum making us skirts like this with matching tops. Very swish.

Love your skirts. I'm hard pressed to pick a favourite but my beady eye keeps coming back to the floral... fabulous fabrics.

Good luck with the renovations...
