Self made

A few months ago I picked up this colourful fabric with
the intention of sewing a skirt for myself.

Black short sleeve button down - Skirt - Red shoes Biviel - Purple bag Coach 
It took me a while, as not only have I never taken
a sewing class, but I did it without any patterns.

While I can only look at the imperfections: 
high waisted, pleats are not the same size, 
finish is poor and so on - I have to admit that
I am quite proud that I sewed it on my own.

The best part of it all was getting compliments and humbly answering
"It's not perfect, but I made it myself".

It's beautiful! I can see why when you saw that fabric, you knew it had to become this skirt. Plus, pleats are really tough! I hate pleats!

And don't be so humble, if someone tells you they love your skirt, you should proudly reply "Thanks, I made it!" and then they will be even more impressed.
