A Proud of me moment

Yesterday I decided I had nothing to wear for a night out. So I cracked out one of my books and, for the first time ever, drafted a pattern for an A line zip skirt :D. I bribed the children with an Ikea lunch (we were meant to be meeting friends at Wisley but Phoebe had banged her head in an impressive style and was waay too whingy and clingy to consider it) and picked out some material. Came home via the haberdashers for a zip and some hook and eyes. I then proceeded to make myself this:

To say I am proud of myself is a bit of an understatement! I wore it out when I went to meet up with some friends and it felt great to wear something I made! Next step a dress I think, I quite fancy a 50s style dress with a big skirt lol!
