Blue Patchwork Lawn Fabric
I made this shirt once before in a blue check chambray reviewed here. I wanted to see how it would look in a solid fabric. The skirt is very quick and easy to make up. I did not use the front and back facings. Instead, I lined the skirt with a light weight, white cotton fabric. I also added a couple inches to the length.
I colored my hair! I got tired of that chemo gray I had. Well, that is how it grew in. It was a combo of gray and blonde, but it started looking more gray than blonde. It is just a temporary color. Funny thing is I would always have a little gray in my hair and the temporary color wouldn't cover it all and now it does.
I really like this skirt. It sits low on the waist and has an invisible zipper in the left side seam. This is actually my second time using this pattern. I made another skirt last week out of a pretty pink and brown cotton lawn fabric, but I don't have a top made to match it yet. I started one, but it was a total flop and went in the trash! Ugh. That still happens to me occasionally, but not as often thankfully.
There are 2 darts in the back of the skirt, but you can't see them because of the fabric design!
