Lemon Print Gathered Skirt
The problem with working on multiple projects at once like I do is that sometimes you can get overwhelmed by all the WIP's and no FO's. Last week I was getting a bit annoyed with all the WIP's so I decided to make a quick skirt to satisfy my FO urge.
Gathered skirts are the quickest easiest thing to make and they are so easy to wear as well. I could never have too many gathered skirts in my wardrobe I don't think. There are a million tutorials on the internet if you want to make your own. They are basically one rectangle for the waistband and one rectangle for the skirt. The large rectangle I made 2 times my waist measurement because I wanted lots of gathering. You could easily make this fuller or smaller just by altering this measurement.
As you can tell these photos were taken on a rare sunny day on the GC. I am hoping for another sunny afternoon this week as I have since finished some other projects and I am hoping to get Corey to take pics for me when he gets home from work. Fingers crossed it can happen soon.
