After asking advice on what to wear to a retirement party next year (casual) Beccie, of Sew Retro Rose suggested I wear, among other things, a circle skirt. I have seen them on other “curvy” gals and they look fine but I have always mentally shied away from ME wearing one. I reasoned no 46″ hipped grannie should be sporting a circle skirt in public.
Well, I have been advised to stop the madness and go for it by some of my international sewing buds. Sew, yesterday I decided to make a full circle skirt for an important meeting this afternoon. To my stash I went. Pink, black, and white is one of my new “things”. When I saw this cotton, at Wal-Mart nonetheless, I had to have it.
All the gals seems to wear a stretch belt with their circle skirts so I’ve been pricing them for some months. While $10.00 ain’t bad I made this one for way less. 🙂 Smiling at myself. Now I need to find 3″ elastic in pink and red to complete my stretch belt wardrobe.
All I need now is crinoline in black, red, and white. The Malco Modes one I have is way too poofy for everyday wear, IMHO. Thus, I would like to get a MM one that is not quite as full as the one I currently own.
Sew, what do you think? Should the full circle skirt remain in my wardrobe?
