Colorful Pinafore's

Happy 2015 everyone! It's been a while, I've been so busy with work school and making more garments to show you all. Lately I've been making skirts because I can make them with less time and ease and you can never have enough different style of skirts. Now the skirts I'm attracted to are the full skirts just because I love to twirl around and dance in them and I found an awesome pattern that I had to have.

This is a lovely pinafore skirt and I absolutely had to have this amazing pattern so I snatched it up real quick. With a trip to the Long Beach Depot of Creative Reuse and Mood fabrics I made two lovely skirts with two fun personalities. 

This is fabric I got from mood and is a plaid wool blend and is very warm has a nice poof even without the canvas underskirt I was wearing at the time. This skirt requires a simple top but can have some fun accessories but I choose to keep it simple to show off the skirt.

And did I mention these skirts had pockets! I'm a sucker for a skirt with pockets because I really don't like carrying around a purse because I'm the forgetful type and I don't like it weighing me down.

My camera tilted at this shot haha.

Now the next skirt I created was using fabric I bought from my friends shop Long Beach Depot of Creative Reuse and they carry a lot of knick knacks and items people usually throw out, its an artists heaven.

The fabric I'm not sure but it is very thick and heavy but not as warm as the skirt above.

These skirts were so fun to make and I can't wait to make more to sell to you all :) So keep your eyes peeled.
