Its getting HOT! (46C tomorrow!!!) so I decided to make Heidi a nice cool summer skirt. Of course, because I wanted to ensure she actually wore it, I made it purple!
I simply measured her waist before she went to bed last night then made the width 1.5 times her waist measurement, eyeballed the length etc. and after about half an hour I had a skirt for her to wear today!
Ooh, and because I LOVED the nice cool fabric and didn't want to waste good leftovers, I made one for her baby too!
It was a hit so Heidi is happy and I am happy because its simple, cool and will go with everything!
In other news…
For a number of reasons my skirt fabric for SAGAM and I have decided to call it quits and go our separate ways. Instead of choosing different skirt fabric, I am changing my plan completely and instead making Imagine Gnats Bess Top!
I've measured myself up and cut out a 14 (gah - time to hit the treadmill!!) and will be making it out of a nice light cotton lawn - hopefully it turns out to be a nice breezy top.
If your in South Australia I hope you all stay cool and safe over the next couple of days.
