Making Monday - A new skirt

In 2009 I bought a Clothkits Birdie Skirt
Sewing during nap time.
I cut the skirt out and bought some new lining (thanks to Roobeedoo for the advice) and then got pregnant.

This week, spurred on by seeing a completed skirt on my weekend away in York and realising how well it would go with my red boots, I finally finished it.

I messed up the zip slightly, but nothing major. It was really quite easy and I managed it whilst Thomas napped over the course of three afternoons.

The best thing? It fits perfectly!

Now I need a cardigan to go with it.....
