Yep - here I am, all Photoshopped and pretending to be over 5 foot 2. (You won't tell anyone, will you...?)
I'm wearing my newest offering on the pattern front, my A-Line Skirt. I originally made it as a basic skirt pattern for myself (that I could make in a zillion different ways and nobody need know that I only had one pattern). But Lara saw it, and then Tania... and before you know it, everyone was wanting one. It's now graded from size 8 to size 18 (US sizes 6-14).
I wear the size 10, because I like skirts that hang loosely off my hips. If you prefer to wear your skirts fitted around the waist, you can make the size that fits your waist (see that glamorous fashion model, wearing a size 8, below).
I reckon if you wear skirts to work, this could be the perfect fashion-for-less option for you! You could keep making them slightly differently each time, and nobody would know.... The skirt pattern will be on the website just as soon as I can organise it.
EDITED TO ADD: YOU CAN ORDER IT HERE NOW!
In the meantime, I'll share a bit of the reality behind the gloss of this high-fashion photo shoot.
Yep.. a very small 40-something crafty chick, poncing about in front of a camera while a friend reads out an amusing Facebook conversation. Cracking up.... and being strangely foreshortened....
Another day in Northcote.
BTW - Nice to be back in the land of the cyber-living. My laptop had a little holiday at the repair shop, but seems much better now, thank you.
