A+ Skirts earn an A+ for simplicity

You may remember a couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to win a pattern for an A+ Skirt from Make it Perfect.  Well today I finally made the skirt, and here it is:

I couldn't believe how easy it was to make.  I've never ever done any dressmaking before, and I made it without having to unpick a single stitch.  The instructions are so clear, so if you're thinking of making a skirt, I can thoroughly recommend this pattern.

Here is another view of the skirt - this time with me wearing it (although I've cut off my head as it was a terrible photo of me!)
I'm so excited I want to make more of them, so tomorrow I'm off to the fabric shop for more fabric, and soon I'll have a whole wardrobe of fantastic skirts.  I think perhaps a funky patterned corduroy next, with a pair of chunky knitted tights underneath - makes me cosy and warm just thinking about it.


  1. Thanks Sally!
    Skirt looks fantastic. Can't wait to see your other creations.
    Feel free to add them to the Make It Perfect Flickr group if you like:

  2. Hi Sally,
    Great skirt and so good for a first make!
    I think a lovely corduroy one would be good too.Have a good day skirt fabric hunting!
