Mental note, smile in all future photos and never allow your daughter to take a photo with camera held at waist level. It makes you look twice your real size! But guys it's cold, wet and misable here in Sydney. Time to bring out my new skirt made with a remnant piece of grey and black leopard print ponte from my stash. I made another skirt using this fabric that I have worn to death, blogged about here. I used Vogue 8603 again, this time including the gathers front and back. It is lined with red synthetic lining however after a day in the city I've decided to remove it as is doesn't move with the garment. The fabric is quite thick so doesn't really need a lining. Think I'll take the opportunity to shorten it as well. The coat is also self-made and well worn from last winter. I blogged about it here.
I am making a very interesting jacket at the moment which I hope to finish on the weekend.
