Taking the Michael skirt

This skirt nearly didn't get blogged, but in the end I felt a bit sorry for it and decided to blog it anyway. Plus my sewing output has reaaaally slowed down while I tackle Project Wedding Dress, so it's nice to have something to show you!

Taking the Michael skirt (McCalls 7316)
I love the idea of wrap skirts, and I made this in the summer time thinking it would be a really practical summer skirt. It also ticked the "Ree, you should make more separates" box.  Well, I didn't wear it at all over the summer, mainly cause it looked weird with everything I tried to wear it with! Anyway, I have worn it a few times so far in this rather warm autumn. I'm still not sure about it but Liam really likes it, and I usually trust his styling opinion!

I call this look "apron chic". The amount of wrap over isn't huge so I have been wearing it with leggings and my boots rather than with tights. Even though I'm wearing it with tights in the pictures. Breezy autumn days and wrap skirts aren't beat buds!

This was a very quick make, and came about as I was looking for something to make with the small amount of this heart print cotton I have had lying around for ages. I plumped for this as I've made other views of the pattern before (McCalls 7316), so I thought it'd be a pretty simple sew. It was, especially since I didn't bother with button holes to thread the ties through. What can I say, I was feeling lazy!

Anyway I shall leave you now, and will hopefully be back soon with more to share! 

Over and out!
