Yup, that’s right, I’m totally a Lady (in a red skirt…).

I actually finished this self-drafted circle skirt a few weeks back and it’s quickly made itself a staple in my wardrobe. I’ve worn it at least once a week since I made it! And while I completely admit to it probably not being the most exciting thing to ever have graced the lovely pages of We Sew Retro, it’s pretty and functional and fits in well in my wardrobe with all of strange spring weather we are having here in Sydneytown.

And on a totally different (but red related!)┬ánote, did you know Christmas is only 5 weeks away? Yay! Not that I’m counting down or anything though… *cough*

ps) If you would like to see the kinda cute 1Up Mushroom cake I made my husband for his 30th birthday, it’s on my blog. It’s not sewing but it’s still fun :)

Very cute!

What kind of fabric is this? It seems to have a lovely weight and sheen.

Hi Nathalie – it’s a 100per cent cotton suiting fabric. I totally recommend it, it drapes beautifully and washes easily :)

The drape of this skirt is really lovely! I love sewing garments that you can actually wear on a regular basis. Great job1
