I told you at the beginning of last week that I would show you my new skirt later in the week. Last YEAR I said I would show you the new skirts I had made myself. They never made it to the blog. Call it laziness. Call it forgetfulness. Say I changed my mind. Whatever the reason I kept ‘skirting the issue’ of posting photos to my blog.
last years skirt
In my defense, the sunlight is limited around here in the Winter, making it difficult to get good photos. I shot these on what I thought was a bright, sunny day but till I got all my pieces together, and staged the sun was playing hide-n-seek. So I did the best I could with what I had to work with. I have another skirt from last year – a Boden knock-off that I photographed too but none of those turned out well enough to share. Maybe the sun and my ambition will both appear on the same day soon
this year’s skirt
This one is a sweater knit – I found when I made a quick trip to JoAnn’s for something else. Always have to make a trip down the aisle of knits – they have had some cute stuff there. I also have fabric I found there recently to make a couple maxi skirts for spring.
I actually have another skirt I made this year that I was going to photograph the day I did these. But for some reason someone hung it in my closet before it went through the wash and it needed to be washed. I’m blaming my teenager
So hopefully I can photograph the two skirts and show them to you soon too. Or maybe I will wait till next year. Really, why get in such a hurry???
Do you ever procrastinate?
