Yellow!!! It’s my colour this summer. I can’t get enough of it.
A girl I work with was wearing a bright yellow maxi skirt which I absolutely fell in love with. I wanted one of my own but didn’t want to copy it exactly so decided to make myself a midi version.
This is the first garment I’ve made since I graduated with a degree in fashion design, five years ago. It was a bit scary getting started, but it was a nice easy project to ease myself back in. Now I have a million ideas for things I want to make. It’s nice to find my passion again.
I got rid of all my sewing stuff when I moved to Japan but managed to borrow my gran’s sewing machine.
What I didn’t consider was all the other useful tools for making clothes. I made this skirt with no ruler, no pattern, no fabric scissors, no unpicker (would have been very handy!) and only using about 5 pins.
Next time I will be more prepared!
A quiet ride home after a hard days work.
