In my mad rush to make a new wardrobe for my honeymoon in Japan back in November I turned to a skirt I’ve made a few years ago. The Little Bee skirt is a straightforward and free pattern. Great for people wanting to get into sewing. It has simple fit and includes an invisible zip and darts which are great basic skills for a new dressmaker.
Apologise for the terrible photo, I’d worn the skirt all day so it looks a little crumpled. Overall it’s a great wardrobe staple, it’s not my sexiest piece but it’s practical. My only mistake was using silky acetate lining which means the skirts swivel as I wear them. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to stop this?
Finally here’s a photo of me sporting my green spotty version about to go on our first bullet train. They are amazing, if only UK trains were so quick, efficient and tidy!
