I Made a [Pleated] Skirt

I made this last Sunday. I have had the textured green fabric for a couple of months. Predictably it comes from The Fabric Shop in Otara. (It also comes in bright yellow and a beige. I am kind of tempted by the yellow, but I know it would be a bit much!)

Again, fairly predictably I used a stylearc pattern. This time is is the Candice skirt. It was very easy to make and fits well.

I taught myself, via a youtube video, how to use my rolled hem foot. I can tell you that the hemming took longer than the skirt making and in some places, I had to go back and add a few hand stitches. I plan on wearing this to school with my navy cardi. I love blue and green.
