Something, something, polka dots…Something, something, complete.

My Bridgette Skirt is done! I couldn’t wait until Friday to post this, for I am an impatient soul. It took me a while to actually start liking this when I first put this on, for pencil skirts can be a hard shape for me to pull off. So I made a few mods that made me feel better about the piece. First, I made the waistband 3 inches instead of 1 1/2. This way, it looks a little better if I decide to tuck it in. I also decided that the pattern’s back side looked better as the front. After my first wear, I also decided to changing the elastic. I’m going to make a fabric casing for the elastic instead of knitting it so there won’t be so much bulk around the waist. So, enough words, I’m posting pictures now!

    I love it! And you look super cute in it. Seems like the perfect thing to west in Savannah – at least until it gets hot!
