Perhaps its how easy it is to make the skirt that attracts me so. Or it might be the shape of it – not quite a plain A line skirt, it has the drama of the side box pleats on the lower skirt section. left out the back zip and cut the back piece on a fold. Scuba has great stretch and recovery.
Size wise I traced a 10 based on the finished garment measurements (I am normally a 12 on Vogue patterns). I did this because the scuba has some stretch in it. The fabric was an impulse online purchase from FC Fabric Studio . One of those posts you see on IG and click away and before you know it, you are receiving a lovely package of fabric. And it really is lovely, just look at it.
I like how I feel when I am wearing these skirts. This one, in particular, gets a lot of compliments. Most people say they love how it reminds them of summer :-).
I have taken to wearing it as armour when its grey outside and I need to keep the blues at bay…

I bring my own Spring😂. #ootd is my Vogue V1485, a Nicola Finetti designer pattern. Made in bright floral scuba. This is the 3rd iteration of this pattern. The huge bright florals never fail to shield me from the grey weather keeping the blues away😊. Also wearing my fave Wonder Woman tee that I've had for over a decade now. Happy Tuesday everyone! I have to get back to #springcleaning because #sheready for spring.
