It's been... well, it's been a little while since my Thanksgiving post. I hope everyone had a wonderfully Merry Christmas (We did! Traveled to AZ and the girls did pretty well.), a happy and fun New Year celebration (Thanks to good friends of ours we rocked a living room strobe light dance party!), and is enjoying the new year so far.
I took a little break from blogging so my husband and I could concentrate on a project we've been working on. I'm so excited to announce it soon! Pins & needles, people. It's seriously awesome. Until then, however, I have a lot to catch up on. I went back through my zillion nearly-finished blog posts, and decided to just start somewhere.
In October I posted about the Circle Skirt Sew-along I participated in. But I never got around to sharing the actual shots of my skirt. So that's where my post-holiday return to blogging begins.
Behold - my first circle skirt!
I wanted a winter weight skirt, since it was turning into chilly fall when I made the skirt. I chose a wool-blend houndstooth and it is SERIOUSLY hefty. It was easy to sew though, because it's not a dense weave, just heavy material, if that makes sense.
As you can see below, the material is reversible, so I used the white "teeth" for the waistband and the black "teeth" for the body of the skirt.
All these photos were taken without the petticoat underneath, because it wasn't complete.
I already have material for several more spring/summer skirts. I foresee that lighter material being loads easier to work with but this was still totally worth it.
