So, I first saw this skirt at my new blogging friend Julie’s blog. She’s got some really juicy projects over there, and I’m pretty sure I looked at this post 83 times while I was making the skirt. It’s this pattern from BurdaStyle, and PS have you been there lately? They’ve got some smokin’ patterns there for FREE or almost free. I recently rediscovered it’s exceptional merit as a resourceful website.
This pink fabric was a lucky thrift store find, that I originally made into this dress. I made up the pattern after a vintage designer maternity dress I saw in a book, but it just didn’t turn out. I wore it once or MAYBE twice, and felt like a 5 year old. I put in two different sleeves, and was unsatisfied with both; I eventually gave it the ax, and put that pretty pink fabric to better use.
(See my little man trying to catch up with me?)
