Foxy pencil skirt

20140222-185519.jpgI saw this Fabric last week at Grey’s Fabric and Notions, where I go for a Wednesday night sewing club (I know what you’re thinking, how do I pack so many thrills into my life??).  It called out to me from the bolt.  If you’re wondering what does the fox say ,I can tell you it’s saying “make me into a little pencil skirt!”  20140222-185452.jpgI used the same pattern that I used for this guy in sweater knit and this guy in stretch velvet.  That is to say, not a pattern at all but self drafted from my measurements.  Have I mentioned lately how much I freaking love knits??

20140222-185501.jpgI promise I did eventually hem the thing, but I wanted to take the pictures yesterday before it got dark and postponed the hemming, hence the way it’s rolling up.

The weather was gorgeous this weekend so we finally got to take some pictures outside. I am really looking forward to a return to the carefree springtime days of outdoor photos.  Now that we’re in the depths of horrible frozen February, if it’s not too cold out to take pictures, then it’s definitely too dark out. 

I’ve got some exciting other stuff in the hopper and I can’t wait to share it with all of you when it’s done!  Currently on my sewing table is a 20s style dropped waist dress for a Downton Abbey party I’m going to next week.  I decided to really challenge myself by making some big alterations to the pattern I chose , and also by using some very finicky fabric.  So all told it’s been a very time consuming project, but I am quite pleased with it so far.  I’ll be blogging the finished product next week, so stay tuned!
