Me Made March Day 24

So here it is!  Cord skirt with front pleat and pockets, lined and done in one evening...well did have to finish the lining hem this morning at 06.30 so I could wear it to work without bits of thread hanging down... ;)

Me wearing me made grey jumbo cord skirt with front pleat and pockets lined with sunshine yellow (sorry you can't see it), purple top shop bought, purple tights and grey boots, me made necklace, earrings and bracelet shop bought or present.
I'm really happy with the skirt as it's cord and it's fab, but the front pleat may need some more work as it's not quite sitting right in this photo and noticed I needed to adjust it a few times, maybe some interfacing or some starch or more ironing will work.

And just because it shows how happy I am in this skirt:

Me with a big grin as it's grey jumbo cord! ;)

Loving the sunshine too and the clocks go forward this weekend, so more sunshine to enjoy when I get home of an evening but boo hiss to loosing an hours sleep! 


  1. I think maybe a good strong press, then topstitch just along either edge of the pleat, so it stays pleat-like, even when it's opened up. Did that make any sense? I don't know what it looks like at the top, but you could probably do most of the topstitching without having to take it apart.

  2. I do love it, I knew I would! Looks great, now where can I get one? ;-)

  3. Thanks Mary! I'll have a go!

    Now Sarah, if you really mean that I can send you the pattern...!

  4. you made that skirt in an evening??? woweee - you are a bit of a star. i just thinking (on my walk back from the school run this morning) now that your MMM is coming to an end (nearly) - if you had any clothes you have really missed wearing, or will you carry on wearing your me-mades on a daily that you have loads of choose from? XXX

  5. I'd made the skirt before and find once I know the order of things I can just get on with it as it's mostly straight lines.

    I only thought about the end of MMM yesterday when another friend mentioned it to me and I've been thinking about it all day. I don't know what I'm going to do, think I'll just mix it in a bit more as don't have lots and lots of me made clothes. There's a few skirts I've missed wearing as I don't have the me made tops to go with them. x


Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment!
