My Grand-daughter and my Skirts

My grandchildren are here this week and I thought it would be fun to get Jessica involved in my blog so we decided to photograph my skirts. Jessie photographed most of the shots. She also chose the tops and the jewellery to match each skirt.

This is a self-drafted skirt made out of a border embroidered linen.I formed little pleats on either side of the centre front and back and sewed them down about four inches.













































This bias-cut skirt was made at a Sandra Betzina Workshop in Halifax,2006.I used her Vogue #2911.I will give some pointers on sewing bias on another post.
































This is my grand-daughter, Jessica.She is wearing my Simplicity#4045 View C. which is in another border embroidered linen. Doesn't she look cute in my outfit?




































This skirt is long and elegant and I love it. I made it out of an almost sheer
and very light polyester. I used aTNT pattern which is out of print, New Look 6345.






























This is is my favorite skirt .The pattern is Simplicity #5005, another OOP pattern . I made this one out of a heavy polyester.
Don't you just love the polka dots and the colours?


































This is another skirt made from S5005,this time in a cotton batik.My grand-daughter is modeling it. Jessica has a certain flare for modeling I'm thinking!

Your grand daughter models all your outfits very nicely. I have to admit I like all these skirts and the fabrics :)
