MCCALL 5557 – PART TWO

February 23, 2014

After the weather put a damper on my first attempt to photograph this skirt, I decided to write about it in two parts. In Part One I shared all about the “guts” of my skirt, that is, the inside details of construction and how I sewed it all up. But for those of you who don’t sew, here are some non-sewy outfit shots!

It was still freezing outside, but Wil and I had a lot of fun taking photos despite the chill. I shared a little video on Instagram to prove how cold I was haha! Where is Spring?!

Oh yeah, I changed my hair color! My next WWII reenactment isn’t until June so I figured I can have wildly red hair until then. The color is so fun and it was just the kind of brightness I needed in my life to bring me out of my funk. I’ve been experimenting with finger waving clips and was so close to having really awesome hair for this shoot, but I jumped the gun and took the clips out before my hair was completely dry. Rats. All of my wave brushed out so I opted for the beret instead, which is fine because I really like berets!

Getting out in the woods again, taking photos, and wearing my handmade skirt has made me feel so much better. I want to thank everyone who left a comment on my last post about being in a sewing/general funk. It’s so nice to know I’m not alone and you all truly made me feel loved. Thank you from the bottom of my heart <3

Well, this is the last post about my first completed Twelve Pattern Challenge project. Now I can get back to sewing those pants I’ve been talking about!
