Feeling Stripey

Ever since I acquired some stripey jersey fabric from the lovely Rehanon at a swap, I knew I wanted to make it into a skirt. And today was finally the day! Using a maternity skirt that I specifically bought to use as a pattern, I whipped it up this morning.

Stripey Maternity Skirt

There’s not much to say about the project. It was fast, easy and just what the morning called for.The skirt only has one seam and I am happy that I managed to match the stripes. I encased some elastic for the waistband and that’s it. I had the perfect amount of fabric (a meter-ish, I think) and enough left over for a nifty headband. Sweet.

Happy Monday!

  1. Ah glad the fabric went to such a good home and is housing such an important person πŸ™‚ Also I have gone to bed dreaming about home cooked donuts for the last few nights. I’m going to give into my desire and make them this week. I’m a traditionalist when it comes to filling so they’ll be jam packed πŸ™‚



    • Oooh. You can’t go wrong with a traditional jam-filled doughnut. But I’ve been tempted to make them again with lemon curd. *Drool* But why stop there, why not do both (not together)?


I'd love to hear from you
