As many of you know last year I tried to go new pattern free. I think I ended up buying 4 or 5 patterns last year but believe you me I lusted after a lot more. One of those was Vogue 1247 in particular the skirt part of that pattern. I'm reminding you of all of this so that you can understand how excited I was to give it a go a few months ago. I made 2 muslins and used all of the techniques from the fitting course I bought from craftsy and then made a brightly striped skirt that fit well but really isn't my favorite and realized that as great as it would be in denim I was awful about reusing my patterns. Well even though I haven't gotten as many remakes done as I wanted I am really enjoying re-imagining the patterns that I have here on hand and this skirt may be one of my all time favorite things that I have made. I already have daydreams about making a wool one.
