I Made It Monday: Sewing with the Flat Bum Mum

One of the goals of this blog is to encourage others to sew.  So when I suggested to the fabulous Bron at Flat Bum Mum that we team up to make a skirt and she said YES I was thrilled. 

If you haven't checked out Bron's blog you really have to.  She's a stylish Mum of 3 (including twins, I always feel like twin's are worth extra points it the Mum stakes!) who writes an interesting and funny real life blog for real Mums. 

We each made a skirt using this tutorial
I had this gorgeous fabric (from The Remnant Warehouse) in my fabric stash for a long time, so I posted it on IG and asked what I should make with it.  The almost unanimous answer was maxi skirt!  You were all so right! 

I have a confession to make.  I didn't own a maxi skirt.  Not one.  Why??? 

Skirt: Made  By Me; Necklace: Made By Me; Tee: Target

I am loving the maxi skirt!  So much so that I've made a second one.  You have the ease of wearing a skirt without having to worry about remembering to shave your legs (not that I'd ever do that...* ahem*)

Here is Bron's beautiful skirt, didn't she do a great job? 

Bron at Flat Bum Mum looking amazing!

I love that you can't make such different skirts with the same simple pattern. 

So have a go at this simple skirt - I'd love to see your creations!
