This week I made myself a denim skirt.
I made the pattern myself using the "Design-it-Yourself Clothes" book I got for my birthday. It was pretty easy to make the pattern; what math was involved was simple, even for me, and as long as you have an idea it's pretty easy. The book doesn't include many directions for sewing the pieces together so I added some extra things, like an inside waist band:
And a not-so invisible zipper (this didn't involve going to the store to get an invisible zipper):
I have been trying to stop swearing, and I was amazed when I realized that I made this whole skirt without uttering a single curse word, but as usual I thought too soon. Putting on my brand new tights this morning to wear with the skirt what should happen? A big huge run that's what. I think that justifies a little swear. I just hate that! So my stylish outfit that went with my fancy tights was axed and I did some digging (through the laundry) and instead came up with this outfit:
And I accidentally cut my face out of the picture but didn't realize until I had gotten to school. Oh and those boots; I wear them about once a year, which is just enough time to forget how much pain they cause me.
