Knipmode birthday skirt – Final

Well, I had to put in a few late nights but managed to finish my skirt a few hours before my birthday dinner. There is a small section of binding in the back that needs a little tweaking but I can take care of that after the mad holiday rush is over.

I am so happy with how this turned out! It is definitely a showstopper and sexy without being vulgar. I would love to make this again sometime in a more summery fabrication.

I apologize that I didn’t take more photos of the sewing process since I was in such a rush at the end. I honestly didn’t think I would finish!

Thanks for visiting and a Merry Christmas to those who celebrate. The baby is spending the night with us tonight so that she can spend Christmas Eve Day with us. Our meal will be simple this year since I don’t want to spend all day in the kitchen. Babies don’t keep, after all.

    That skirt is gorgeous, Gigi. Enjoy that beautiful little grandchild. Being a grandmother is the best thing in the world, isn’t it? Merry Christmas!

  2. Yes, Gorgeous, Gigi! On your dress form, it has a bit of a Spanish feel (flamenco-esque). Not sure if that is the case up close but the asymmetrical style and roses on the lace! Happy birthday! Happy Holidays!
