I made a skirt last night. Long time coming, it feels like I haven't made myself a piece of clothing in ages. Not really what I had hoped for this year. I really wanted to make more...but as usual life, and other such stuff gets in the way. But this maxi skirt....pattern totally made up as I went was rather a quick project that probably only took 30 minutes. I love the tribal print...I knew straight away it would make a great maxi skirt....I shall be planning more and if it works a second time (let me first rule out a fluke...then I could consider a tutorial).
As I set up the tripod to snap a few shots of said made skirt, I did take a moment to consider my location. Usually I just plop myself near the side fence of our backyard but today I was a little self-consious. You see I have new neighbours. Yes, I could just imagine the conversation over dinner at their house....."hmmm you know our neighbour takes pictures of herself" "Oh really?" "yes, I think it's a sign of madness" "your probably right, perhaps we should avoid her at all cost" So I snuck down the other side of my house...the icky side with the hot water system, the old door and mirror and the air conditioning unit. But at least my neighbours didn't see!
