I recently finished up some maxi skirts for my sister-in-law, all with trendy prints from girlcharlee because she is young and skinny and can get away with things like chevron and horizontal stripes.
This one is to hit just above her knee, in tiffany blue chevron.
Mustard and ivory stripe, though in my opinion it is more orange than mustard in real life. I had previously bought a couple yards and it was much more dull, a true mustard, and the same picture was up on the website when I ordered this one. I wasn't thrilled when I got my shipment and posted a picture of the two side by side on their facebook page inquiring as to why they looked so different. The ladies there were really nice and explained they had complaints it was too dull. They then shared my picture on their page and it set off a debate as to which one was better. Well, girlcharlee listened and brought back the original color while keeping the new brighter print also. So if you order it, one is labeled original and one is labeled bright. Next time I will choose original:)
And finally a black and white chevron. I bought from the first batch of chevron print last year and was disappointed when it faded SO much on the first wash, so I was leery when she wanted to order the chevrons. Let me tell you, they fixed the problem big time! This has been washed my typical 3 times before sewing and there was no fading. So much happier, in fact kind of wishing I had ordered some too!
All three skirts are the same, the waistband is meant to be folded over, though it is up in the pictures, all have a slight a-line shape.
Forever ago I ordered some comic board books to organize my fabrics. Did I do anything with them? Of course not. Earlier in the week I took on the giant task of folding all my cotton/apparel fabrics on the boards. Ben must have really liked the way it looked because when I ran out he was so nice and picked me up another set from the local comic book store (who knew we had one?!).
Aaaah. It makes pairing my fabrics so much easier, and I can finally shut the door all the way, ha!
She even chose to eat her snack there.
