my creative space

Do you remember a few weeks ago I ran into a bit of, let's call it drama, with the versatile wrap skirt?  Well this weekend I decided I would stop being angry with myself for cutting out the wrong size (too small!) and make the darn thing anyway.  I have younger sisters and it would be bound to fit one of them. I was still annoyed that someone else would be enjoying the beautiful fabric I had splurged on especially for myself but c'est la vie.

I worked my way through the easy to follow pattern and...

It fits me!  It fits me!  It fits me!

Are you getting the immense joy that came from this discovery?  Obviously the sizing was VERY generous.  I was so excited by it all that I wore it to work on Monday and got lots of lovely compliments which made me feel very happy indeed. (I did have another picture to share but I just clicked on "delete forever" instead of "edit" - oops!)

Oh, and I am still cutting out bits for the crazy mom quilts quilt-a-long.  I'm still a few weeks behind everyone else and I think it will probably stay that way.    

So hurrah! A happy and successful creative space for me this week.  I'm looking forward to reading what everyone else has been up to over here


  1. I find sizing to be quite generous in most commercial sewing patterns - great skirt and I'm so glad it fits!

  2. Lovely skirt, and beautiful fabric :)

  3. Great skirt and what a great surprise for you to discover that it does fit.
