One of the reasons I decided to start my own sewing blog is because I enjoy seeing what all you fellow seamstresses are making. I love to read about what patterns you like and don’t like and I learn from your successes and failures (we all have a few of those). So much of my inspiration comes from you! One of the blogs I find most of my inspiration from is Sew Caroline. I LOVE her style and everything she makes is so fashion forward. This week she posted a DIY circle skirt sewalong. She created the tutorial herself and provides you with step by step directions to draft your own pattern using your measurements.
Her circle skirt came out so cute that I decided to “sewalong”.
I love how it turned out!
On a “whim” I tried this hot pink leather belt with it. Glad I did!
I found this fabric at JoAnn’s. It feels like charmeuse. I had it in my stash for awhile, because I figured it would be hard to sew with. It wasn’t hard at all! I did have to decrease my tension and increase my stitch length, because the fabric was wanting to gather.
I love when you just happen to have all the right pieces in your wardrobe to go with something you just made. I think this is a pretty awesome outfit.
Look at the cute pup in the picture. She was enjoying hanging out on her dog bed on this Saturday morning.
Caroline is doing a circle skirt link up so head on over to Sew Caroline to get your circle skirt inspiration. I’m headed to go make another one! Chambray or floral voile? Such decisions!
