Grainline Moss skirt

This is going to be a really quick write up with mostly fun photos of my first Moss skirt by Grainline Studio. This skirt went together so easily it made me tear up a bit. I cut a size smaller for the hip of the skirt because as I often say I have no rumpus. The size blending went really smoothly, even blending the waistband and all the pieces. It was like Jen did it for me herself.

I used a black twill I’ve bought a while ago. I actually bought about 8 yards of it because I know how much I make things in black and if it doesn’t go so well you can’t tell. ha!

Oh and because it’s the Grunge Sew-along, I thought I’d play that up. But first, the front, side, back pics. 🙂 I didn’t wear tights, though it’s certainly cold enough for them, because I wanted you to see the actual length. I thought it was going to be too short but it’s not. Thanks to Kirsty and Jen for encouraging me to make this! I’ve been wearing it a lot.

The top is Maria Denmark’s day to night top. I made it months ago and never blogged about it. It’s out of a wool jersey and just toasty enough.

So, below I give you a standard back garment shot and what I’ll call my album cover shot. I had fun taking these pics.

This weekend I’m off to Canada to visit Gillian and I get to meet some of the sewcialists that live in and near Toronto. I’m hoping to pick up some fabric, hang out and over all just enjoy the ride!

        I keep trying, especially since inheriting my Dad’s guitar, but I just can’t pick it up. I gifted the guitar to my brother, who has had much more success learning.

        I told him over the phone while he was restringing it at a family reunion I couldn’t make it to. Sort of sad I did that, because apparently his smile was epic! 😀
