Pink elastic-waist skirt

I thought that it would be a good idea to put together a little inspiration board for my next project in the Colette Patterns Spring Palette Challenge (see my previous posts here, and information about the challenge here).

My next project is a very simple elastic-waist skirt, based on instructions from the Freshly Picked skirt tutorial.

You may recognise the fabric photo from my last post, it was a 80cm remnant, bought for £1.50, and the elastic only cost me 50p. So this project will be a bargain at £2!

But I cant help feeling that my progress is a little slow with this challenge. The goal is to create a small number of garments that go well together in a spring palette of your choosing. And I feel that maybe the quality of the garments that I'm making isn't high enough, or that maybe I chose the wrong colours. I don't know, maybe I should change my plans? I just want to reach a stage where I can be proud to wear the clothes that I make. I think this is something that every beginner goes through, so please tell me I'm not alone in this.

  1. I think if you're unsure about a project there's a reason for it. I had more success when I started to only make things I was really enthusiastic about. So why not change plans if you aren't enthused - you are sewing for yourself so you should please yourself. I like the idea of doing project boards - that must really help to see what's working and what isn't. Hope you get your mojo back soon!
