a summery skirt

Mais oui! Its summertime and I now have a skirt to match the colours of the season.

When I first laid eyes on this bold nani iro linen blend I knew something had to be done with it. I followed Genevieve's tutorial for a high-waisted gathered skirt. It is my first attempt at a skirt - and an invisible zip no less! I truly do love it, loud and colourful as it is. I think Reuben does too because when he sees me swishing about in it his eyes light up with wild excitement. Also, I feel it resembles something of the lambs ears and purpley-blue hydrangeas growing in our garden, don't you think?

Happy day to you!
