A Seriously Silly Wiggle Skirt!



So I’m feeling pretty smitten with my new skirt…

Yet another variation of my trusty McCall’s 5081 pencil skirt pattern, this baby was whipped up in just a couple of hours after I was practically smacked in the face by a flash of inspiration and an uncontrollable desire to own a fishtail frill wiggle skirt made from this sickeningly fabulous printed nylon I picked up in Walthamstow.

For some reason, the print and texture of this fabric reminds me of Carl Douglas’ Kung Fu Fighting… Which I’ve now had stuck in my head for three days…
For more images and details on the sheer wiggliness of this skirt, pop on over to my blog, Stitch Me Softly…
