Lots of other people had made this and I’d loved their makes but still thought it wouldn’t suit me. Eventually, I convinced myself to take a leap and bought the paper version (which comes in a sweet little booklet/envelope style wrapper). It’s a very well written pattern and was very easy to follow.
I picked this fabric up when I was lucky enough to visit the Guthrie & Ghani shop in person. I had been to a wedding the day before and that had halved the distance I am normally from the shop. They have lovely pictures on their website which do an excellent job of accurately representing the fabrics but no matter what it is always nicer to see and feel them in person.
A perfectly fitting, incredibly flattering skirt. I would love to make another but in a nice deep navy blue. And maybe a mustard one.
