It is more than time I showed you the little skirts I made over the last two Sundays...
The first one was made on the day before I met Shashi: I was hoping to wear it in Shashi's honour, but it finally rained too much to be wearing a skirt.
This picture was taken earlier this week at 7 pm, on the Canal Saint-Martin, ten minutes from our place. Yep, Spring has finally reached Paris! And we are taking long walks in the evenings, as often as we can.~*~
(I know I need white shoes, but I couldn't find any in my size (US size 5 - UK size 3,5 I think) anywhere in the dozens of shoe shops around our place. Am I really such a dwarf? You see what I mean, now Jenna?)I bought the fabric with Shashi on May 29th: 5 euros for two metres, and I have enough left for a dress. That skirt cost me a total 3 euros at most.
Here's a first WIP picture of Celtic Summer:
This is the back of her dress. I finally chose to go with the fabric that Carol sent me for my Birthday, rather than the Country Stitch Eden fabric: the colours are the same really, but those in Carol's fabric are more muted and soft - Seb and I felt it would be better to have a less "busy" choice for Celtic Summer. Now that I have started and stitched 3 different shades on the fabric, I am really very happy with that choice. What a wonderful present you made me, Carol!
Oh, and I have two dress projects:
New Look 6459
I chose the design that is worn by the model; I finished tracing the pattern and cutting the fabric for this one (which is by far the least interesting part for me), and I hope to sew it up this weekend. The fabric is the same as the the blue skirt above.
