It’s an understatement to say that I was less than enthused with how my over-the-bump dirndl skirt turned out. As such, I sent it to Valhalla this weekend and this quite simple, but delightfully wearable, phoenix rose from the ashes:
After hacking the waistband off of the previous skirt, I realized that I had another very stretchy blue fabric of similar color with fantastic recovery in my stash. I originally purchased it from Fabricline (AKA Rose City Textiles) and made a tank dress/swimsuit coverup for our honeymoon that I never blogged. I also can’t remember its exact composition, but it’s a jersey, I’m fairly certain it’s wicking, and it’s either poly or nylon with mucho spandex. Basically perfect for a maternity panel.
I made a straight medium and used a wonderfully soft elastic I picked up from Sew Sassy many moons ago (when I was thinking I would learn how to make bras; that sure hasn’t happened yet!). I love how comfortable and forgiving it is; anything that presses on my belly too much really piss me off at the moment.
Whee! I’ll post a recap and show you all of the outfits these 8 pieces can make (well, 9 including some ready to wear denim shorts) within the next couple of days.
So glad I was able to FINISH!
