I've made a skirt

Firstly, thank you all for your get well messages, so very kind of you all, you are all such kind bloggers.  Sewing isnt too strenuous  thoroughly enjoyable, and productive so I continue to sew.

Ive made a skirt, just a simple straight one with a pleat at the back.  not too difficult. The fabric is so pretty it didnt need much.  I fell in love with this fabric that I picked up from the Shuttle last year.  My initial intention was to make the white jacket  from my solutions  patterns on sidebar, but time was just against me.   The piece was double edged and I still have enough to make a top. I couldnt decide between a fitted dress or skirt.  Skirt it was, hoping it will be more adaptable. 

                                                                                                        We attended a wedding on Saturday.  Looking at all the photos we had taking throughout the day, we didnt get many of ourselves so I asked husband to take one of the skirt for the blog.  Of all the lovely settings we had been in, we ended up in the lobby at the reception near the public conveniences, nice!  By then  time was moving on and the light was poor. 

It was a beautiful day, not too hot, just right. 

After we came out of the service this band played while the photos were taken is was wonderful. People in the street stopped to watch them.

The groom is Scottish so the men were wearing their kilts,  I do like kilts.  For me the highlight was after the couple came out from signing the register they were escorted by a piper with his bearskin hat, very impressive.   
More photos please

 Remember the bridesmaid dresses, that I was altering, sadly I was unable to finish the second lot of alterations due to being in hospital, so husband took them back so they could get them finished elsewhere.  I did however remake the little white dress as it was enormous in size but the right length.  Looks like the were still have  a few fitting problems.  During the course of the day I did a few little minor alterations. Not helped by the fact there was  a giant inflatable slide for the children (and adults)  
We had a lovely weekend, hope you are having a good one too.

  1. They are lovely pictures. Your outfit is gorgeous. Well done.

  2. I think the skirt was the right choice - it does look very wearable and you will be able to put it with lots of lovely tops. The little girls looks lovely. I love the scottish attire - it really is a lovely little wedding. Glad you are on the mend.
