And then a couple of months after that one of the mags had a pattern for an asymmetric wrap and I had the perfect bit of sale-rail bargain to make it. And this was the result. It's a fine cord and I really love it.
I'd been planning to make another for over a year now, I've had some gorgeous stretch grey flannel and was planning to face it with some lovely petersham. BUT, my original one rises really badly at the back and the fit is a bit shonky. I thought about doing a bum adjustment (and how WEIRD does that sound?!) - I spent a few days earlier this week researching and looking for tutes and how-tos. And it all sounded a bit of a faff really.
But then I thought why not go straight to my TNT-everything-is-awesome-new-favourite, The Chocolate Chip Skirt?
I had a bit of a moment, the wrap has been in my head for so long that I was reluctant to abandon it, but I KNEW I would wear the other one A LOT. Plus, POCKETS!
In the end I had another JFDI moment!
So, charcoal grey stretch flannel with a contrast pocket. A while ago I bought a scrap bag from Get Cutie, on eBay. They do lovely dresses in fabulous prints. Sushi! Matrioska! Frida Kahlo! And every so often they sell off scrap bags of off-cuts. I got one a while ago and it was full of fab prints.
I had some Marvel, but not quite enough, BIG sugar skulls, Day of the Dead skeletons, and some Frida Kahlo.

.The pockets are slightly different - the fabric had brides and grooms so I did one each side!
