I have been trying to get rid of things I don’t really love. Goodwill will receive a mighty haul from me soon. To replace them, I’ve been making things I can style a number of different ways. For example, this gathered fishtail skirt inspired by A Pair & A Spare.
While I still love plaid, I no longer have reason to wear my collection of short plaid skirts that serve to make me look about 10. Instead I have this, which I would wear every day if I could. It’s a simple gathered skirt, with the elastic sewn directly onto the self fabric instead of into a casing and cut about six inches longer in back. I love my legs, but I don’t like showing off my unders. This skirt is a nice compromise.
Lesson learned: Making things you really enjoy puts into perspective the things you don’t.
Also, I’ll get my 1,000th view today! Happy dance.
